    Hello, guys!

    I was planning to do Accounting & Finance, but Manchester University only offers an industrial placement for Accounting [BSc].

    I'm planning to go back to my country after I finish the course, and I wouldn't like being involved in maths only, more analyzing the financial situation of a company, which would be more interesting.

    My question is: would Accounting be sufficient?

    Or do you think that Accounting & Finance would be much more different, offering a lot more opportunities and being much more suitable for my situation?

    Also, could anyone tell me if Manchester's industrial placements are worth it, and if they're good?

    Thank you very much!

    Look in detail at the degree descriptions/module lists to get an idea of the difference.

    I personally found a placement really useful so I'm sure the fact that they offer one is of benefit
