The Finance and Management programme is designed to provide students with a good foundation and understanding of the accounting and finance principles. The taught modules will give students a clear understanding of the role of accounting, finance and other general management disciplines to ensure successful operations in a range of business settings, including financial, non-financial and public sector organisations. It is designed for candidates wishing to acquire expertise in accounting and finance, whilst developing the necessary skills for general management roles as well. The course builds on the Business School's existing partnerships with Norwich's Financial District, which is one of the largest in the UK.

Programme Structure

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
