Accounting and Finance

Accountants are probably best known for checking the validity of company accounts-auditing but they also devise and operate financial systems, conduct investment analysis, advise on business start-ups, company takeovers and company rescue schemes, and handle individuals' and corporations' tax affairs.

Kent Business School (KBS) has designed the Accounting and Finance degrees to ensure that they respond to the needs and expectations of the modern accountancy profession. They offer the opportunity to spend a year on work placement, or to combine accounting with related subjects. Their supportive and flexible approach to teaching gives you the confidence and skills you need to follow the path that most interests you.


Economics examines some of the profound issues in our life and times, including: economic growth and sustainable development, emerging market economies, financial and monetary crises, environmental and natural resource problems, international trade and aid to poor countries.

KBS has a strong international reputation for excellence for research in key areas of economics and many staff advise government bodies both globally and in the UK. Student satisfaction with our programmes is very high, for four years running (2009-12) we have been in the top five economics departments in the National Student Survey and rank equally highly in other league tables.
