This new programme combines key international, business-focused accounting courses, with courses which examine the economic issues involved in environmental economic development.
It will provide students with a critical understanding of the principal theories and concepts related to accounting and environmental economics and detailed knowledge of one or more specialisms related to these subjects.
It will also develop critical awareness of current issues in research and knowledge creation within international accounting and environmental economics and develop the ability to apply a range of quantitative techniques to different types of data, as well as to evaluate a range of theories appropriate to research in these fields.
Students taking the programme are likely to find jobs in banks, non-govenmental organisations and government institutions, in both developed economies and emerging/ developing economies.
Five core modules are taken:
International Accounting Standards International Management Accounting Climate Change: Causes and Impacts Environmental and Energy Economics Research Methods
Three optional modules from a wide range including Corporate Social Responsibility, Maritime Business, Development Economics and Financial Analysis are also taken.
