Explore the basics of financial and management accounting Explore the basics of financial and management accounting

Academic Lead - Ms Susan Wheeler

An exciting new module for the International Summer School 2016, International Accounting will allow students to study the topic in a country that has been central to global commerce for the last three centuries. It will introduce students to financial and management accounting and the types of information which each provides (and does not provide).

The module will explore basic accounting concepts and procedures used in preparation of accounting statements, enabling the interpretation of the performance of an organisation. Students will be given the chance to examine various companies in the local area, across the UK and can bring knowledge about organisations from their own countries.

The module will also introduce some of the techniques used in management accounting so as to develop an appreciation of its role in organisational planning, control, decision making and performance evaluation.

By the end of the module students will have developed their:

  • Written communication skills, including the ability to present quantitative and qualitative data together with associated analysis. 
  • Cognitive skills, including the ability to analyse critically key current debates in accounting.

Details of field trips will be confirmed shortly.
