OTHM LEVEL 7 DIPLOMA IN ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE

Accounting and finance are at the very heart of business operations. From banking to manufacturing, from huge service industries to micro businesses, the ability to manage, plan and account for money is still the ultimate measure of business success and the key driver of growth.

Many accountants occupy key managerial positions in business, yet few are qualified managers. In the increasingly complex modern business environment, there is a high demand for skilled professionals who can work flexibly in teams across business boundaries.

The objective of the OTHM Level 7 Diploma in Accounting and Finance qualification is to provide learners with an understanding of:

  • contemporary and specialised approaches to accountancy and finance
  • key practical, theoretical and empirical issues, and academic research
