Program Overview

The BA (Hons) Business and Management (Accounting Pathway) offered by Bath Spa University Academic Centre Ras Al Khaimah is designed to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue a successful career in the field of accounting, finance, investments, auditing, taxation, and other finance-related strategic roles in business.

In addition to gaining a deep understanding of financial statements analysis, investment opportunities evaluation, financial plans design, and strategic decision-making in the areas of accounting, banking, finance, and investments, students will also have the opportunity to participate in bespoke work-based learning projects.

These projects are specifically designed to help students grow their professional skills and expand their network by working with a team of students to solve real-world business challenges. As a result, students will graduate with not only theoretical knowledge but also practical experience, making them highly attractive to potential employers.

The demand for accounting and finance professionals in the UAE is continuously increasing, particularly due to the introduction of VAT and corporate tax in GCC countries. Therefore, this program will equip students with the necessary skills to take advantage of the good job opportunities available in the region.
