As such our degrees have been designed to equip you with the knowledge you’ll need in any organisation, large or small.Each of the courses in our accounting, finance and economics framework will give you vital core skills, as well as offering specialist options depending on the pathway you choose to pursue. All courses’ first year units are the same, allowing you the flexibility to transfer to another pathway at the end of the first year. This keeps your career options open and enables you to make more informed choices.
