Accounting & Finance

Accounting & Finance is concerned with the concepts of money, business and management, with an emphasis on professional careers in this area.

The terms 'Accounting' and 'Finance' are not necessarily synonymous with one another. Accounting is concerned with a range of information analysis, for many different aspects of a business. Finance, on the other hand, is concerned solely with the monetary funds of said business.

Good to Know

Many countries have professional bodies for Accountants and Finance Professionals, so it is worth checking if degrees are accredited by the relevant body for that country. It may even reduce the number of professional exams you need to take to become fully qualified.
