In addition, students have the basic IT skills through completion of computer workshops and have basic skills of designing and building software systems. A wide range of employers recognise that a student with an accounting/finance background has had a strong business-focused education which will have equipped them with important skills (numerical, communication, problem-solving etc).  They are contributing to the performance of both finance-related organisations, as well as a range of other private and public sector bodies. This programme is full accredited with ICAS.
