Accounting and Management Studies (Industry) BSc Hons - 2019 Entry
Do you want to develop a career in management from a numerical perspective? To study a degree that plays to your strengths in maths, but isn’t its sole focus? This course offers you the chance to gain a solid foundation in accountancy, knowledge of management subjects such as human resources or marketing, and workplace experience.
Spending your third year on a paid industrial placement gives you valuable practical experience in business. It also shows how the academic theories you have studied work in the real world.
You start your degree by studying accountancy and finance using genuine data from actual companies. You will learn about economic issues such as inflation, demand and cost. We will also focus on how to build your CV to enhance your opportunities after graduation.
All second-year students study auditing, financial accounting, risk, corporate finance, management accounting for business decisions and statistical analysis. You can also choose whether to write a dissertation. Other options include law, advanced accountancy and finance subjects.
You’ll be supported in securing a third-year placement with companies such as Deloitte, Lloyds Bank, PwC and Samsung. Roles on offer range from finance, auditing and accounting to operations, consulting and risk.
Your final year builds on your knowledge with more advanced options in accountancy, management and finance. The topics you can select range from income tax to ethical behaviour, share prices to mergers.
Combining management studies with accountancy produces graduates with a broad base of abilities in demand by employers. These include practical skills such as report writing, presentations and IT knowledge. Past graduates have also continued their studies, progressing to a Masters degree.

Many of Lancaster's degree programmes are flexible, offering students the opportunity to cover a wide selection of subject areas to complement their main specialism. You will be able to study a range of modules, some examples of which are listed below.
Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster visit our Teaching and Learning section.
Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
All our Accounting and Finance degrees prepare you for a wide variety of careers in business, with many of our graduates working with professional firms and financial institutions, as well as large commercial and local government organisations. Roles include trainee accountants, finance managers and banking advisors.
Your degree will also equip you with highly desirable transferable skills which have helped recent graduates find work in the fields of financial customer service, IT support and marketing and communications. Several graduates have also continued their academic studies and embarked on Masters degrees.
Lancaster University is dedicated to ensuring you not only gain a highly reputable degree, but that you also graduate with relevant life and work based skills. We are unique in that every student is eligible to participate in The Lancaster Award which offers you the opportunity to complete key activities such as work experience, employability/career development, campus community and social development.
