Birkbeck University of London Finance

Programme overview

A good understanding of accounting and finance, and the environments in which they operate, is important for anyone working in, or wanting to enter, the accounting profession. This degree, which is appropriate for students who are in full-time employment, is also relevant to careers in finance and management in a variety of settings.

You will develop a range of transferable skills, including quantitative and decision-making skills, supervisory and management skills and perceptive abilities.

This programme attracts students from both the public and private sectors, including administrators, clerical workers and managers, as well as the self-employed. Because it is taught entirely by evening study, you are able to combine your academic studies with daytime commitments.

The majority of our students work or care for a family, so you will be learning with people from a wide range of backgrounds and with a wide range of experiences. This creates a stimulating and supportive learning environment. Our tutorial/seminar sessions give you a chance to interact with your peers and develop insights into analysing and interpreting a wide and varied subject matter.

We engage in significant collaborative research and have excellent contacts with many public and private sector organisations, professional bodies and researchers at other academic institutions.

This programme is also available for part-time evening study over 4 years.
