You can have a head start in the process of becoming a qualified accountant, thanks to the exemptions provided by this course towards the exams of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
Accountancy has long been a popular destination for graduates because of its excellent career prospects. The average starting salary for graduates with degrees in accounting and finance is above the national average. Half of the Chief Executives of Britain’s top 100 companies in 2013 had a background in accountancy or financial management background (source: Robert Half FTSE 100 CEO Tracker).
The quality of teaching at Sunderland Business School has also gained wide recognition – for example in the area of Business, Management and Marketing we achieved the Best in the North East for Course Satisfaction, Satisfaction with Teaching and Satisfaction with Feedback according to The Guardian University Guide 2015.
We are a University Partner with CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants). CIMA is the largest professional body of management accountants in the world. CIMA qualifications are recognised for equipping people with the skills and knowledge they need to be truly successful in business. We believe this partnership has the power to enhance your degree and improve your earning potential.
In the latest (2014) Research Excellence Framework the area of Business at Sunderland was ranked as 'world-leading' and 'internationally excellent'.
Right from the start, you’ll notice Sunderland’s supportive atmosphere for your studies. There is a Getting Started programme (before you arrive), a Welcome Week where you get to know your tutors, planned one-to-one ‘programme time’ with the course leader, and support and advice from your personal tutor.
