Accounting & Finance BSc | King’s Business School


This course is about two broad things:
financial markets, and financial services. In terms of financial markets we need students
that understand what they are where they come from historically what functions they serve in society, and how they are fundamentally
important for shaping social and economic life today. Financial services is the second theme so in that respect we need to expose students
to different financial service professions from accountants and auditors, to brokers, traders,
fund managers and other types of financial intermediary. This curriculum is distinct because of two broad reasons. One, it really embraces technology in a major way. The amazing, interesting, hugely disruptive
technological innovations that are taking place in the market today Whether it’s artificial intelligence and auditing,
or algorhythms and electronic trading in financial markets. The second thing is a real social science emphasis. That means we don’t just give them courses on
strategy, leadership, accounting we try to help them understand the broader context
within which business operates, so, what impacts do businesses have on society? So that social scientific perspective, we think,
is very important for creating rounded individuals not just people who are good at technical stuff
or crunching numbers but who can really think about the impacts
that those numbers have on society. I think learning accounting is a great thing to do
because accounting is the common language of business. London is one of the biggest financial cities in the world. There is a very high demand for people who have a very good
knowledge and deep command of the financial activities as well as the operating activities of businesses. King’s Business School is located in the centre of London and if you are doing an internship in Central London
you can easily commute from Bush House to your company. The vast majority of our faculty members are research led. They’re out there doing research, interacting with firms, trying to
understand financial markets, understanding changes in the professions so they can take that knowledge back into the classroom
and give students real life case studies, so research is absolutely infused into the programme and comes across in classroom to students on a daily basis.
