Programme Details

Accounting for Management focuses on the crucial role which financial information plays in decisions made by management teams, and in the monitoring and planning of a business organisation’s objectives. This degree programme is one of a set of undergraduate programmes designed by Aston University and offered at Muscat University. This is a dual degree programme, leading to the award of an Aston University degree and a Muscat University degree.

Course Outline

In your first year you will study a wide range of business subjects, gaining the broad insight into management required by all accounting professionals.
From the second year you will explore financial and management accounting in depth, participate in events organised in conjunction with accountancy firms, visit businesses and undertake an interactive business game module.
You will spend your third year on placement in industry. This experience will be of great benefit both in terms of your development as an accountant and in your final year performance.
This structure ensures your degree is taught with both a professional orientation and a proper regard for the conceptual bases of the subject. In your final year, accounting studies are taken to a more refined level, similar to professional qualification standard, but retaining theoretical analysis.
