BA (Hons) International Finance & Business Accounting (Blended Learning)
The BA (Hons) International Finance and Business Accounting blended learning programme is based on a practical and relevant approach to Accounting, Finance, Business Management and Entrepreneurship.
It has been developed to reflect the need for working professionals who wish to enhance their educational qualifications but who would struggle attending a classic full-time or part-time programme.
The Block Delivery format allows us to offer a 3-year programme delivered through an online Virtual Learning Environment, supported by two weekend sessions per semester delivered by the lecturer.
Students can enter the Blended Learning programme at three points during the academic year: September, February and June, with two modules being taken in each semester. The programme can be finished in 8 semesters of study.
Like all Prague College degrees, the BA (Hons) in International Finance and Business Accounting is an internationally-recognized British degree awarded by Teesside University (UK)
Successful graduates can go on to enter employment in areas of accounting and finance, take professional accountancy qualifications such as ACCA or CIMA with generous exemptions, or progress to the MSc in International Management at Prague College, by joining the ACCA fast-track scheme.
