Accounting

The accounting discipline is estimated to be over 7000 years old, with the first accounting records dating back to the Assyrian empire. Accountants use their highly developed professional skills to make financial statement reports to individuals, businesses or organizations including income statements, cash flow statements, statements of retained earnings and balance sheets, which can enable and support management discussion and analysis. A Bachelor of Accounting degree qualifies an individual to practice as a accountant as an independent contractor or an integral part of an accounting firm or large company.

In the UK, Bachelor of Accounting students become highly familiar with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the UK (GAAP UK), as well as key terms like Discussion Papers, Financial Reporting Exposure Draft and International Financial Reporting Standards. Some fields of specialization within the discipline that Bachelor of Accounting students may pursue include cost accounting, financial accounting, forensic accounting, fund accounting and management accounting.
