Accounting and Financial Analysis

Financial statements are the main source of information about a business’s financial health and profitability, so make them work harder for you.


Led by Professor Chris Higson, learn to read financial statements and become fluent in the use of accounting information, so you can more powerfully assess, interpret and influence business success. Contextualise this learning for the real world through an understanding of accounting standards and regulations.


Choose the one-week or evening format to best suit your commitments.  Both formats share the same curriculum.
