Why Study BA (Hons) Accounting and Business Law?
Two disciplines of crucial importance to each other are taught side by side within this course. Accountancy requires knowledge of business and financial law whilst commercial lawyers must have in-depth understandings of how businesses should handle their money, particularly in the field of business law. Therefore, this degree sets you up on two very rewarding and lucrative career paths as well as imbues you with a critical perspective of contemporary legal issues and financial logistics, which is transferable to other career paths too.
With this knowledge, career options span both fields with the possibility of taking an additional one year Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) course in order to apply for solicitor or barrister exams. The accountancy aspect of your course may also set you up to receive an ICAEW CFAB qualification to become a fully chartered accountant.
The addition of an Accounting and Business Law degree to your experiential arsenal provides opportunities for a variety of senior and influential professions. These include:
- Forensic Accountancy
- Tax Advisor
- Licensed Conveyance
The opportunity for work experience and studying abroad are also invaluable for those looking to endeavour in a career in Accounting and Business Law, allowing you to gain real practical experience as well as mix with individuals who can advise and guide you to the best career prospects.
