Accounting

You can study Accounting in combination with a range of business subjects at Strathclyde. In the majority of study combinations, Accounting is fully accredited for entry to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland as well as offering possible exemptions to other professional bodies, eg ACCA and CIMA.

In-depth understanding of a second subject will complement your accounting studies and is particularly valued by employers. You will learn that accounting concerns the preparation, presentation and interpretation of financial information to enable investors, lenders, management, employees, government and others to make effective decisions.

You will learn how to read and interpret accounting information in the annual reports of businesses and the financial information within the public sector and become familiar with the principles and practice of presenting information to those who manage all types of organisations.

You will explore how accounting can be developed to meet the needs of society, in addition to providing information to investors. In your Honours year you will be able to study such issues in class and then investigate them further in a project for your dissertation.
