The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with a breadth of skills and qualities that enable them to work across specialisms and cultures.
This course combines in-depth subject specialism in accounting with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. You will apply your subject knowledge by translating ideas into innovative solutions which may include plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.Â
The accounting aspect of this course will broaden your knowledge in the discipline. This includes providing an insight into accounting institutions (for example, the IASB and ISSB (International Accounting Standards Board and International Sustainability Standards Board), accounting regulations and accounting techniques that are used by organisations in financial markets and beyond. The course is rigorous and draws on theory, cutting-edge research, and practice to prepare you for your future career. You are kept up to date with current events through research-led teaching by academic experts in the fields of accounting and finance.Â
You will work with students from other innovation disciplines, such as psychology, theatre and music. Each subject contributes a different perspective on a challenge and by drawing on your unique ideas and views, you will learn from your subject and other students to develop innovative solutions together.
By the time you graduate, you will have a portfolio of work ranging from live client projects to planning your own entrepreneurial venture. You will have learned how to evaluate the potential of your product or service and how to finance it, and you will have a network of peers and advisers who have worked with you along the way.
