choosing between Accounting and Business with Financial managmentWatch
Advice on studying business at university
I am clueless! I have applied for two courses, Accounting and Business with Financial Management, and I can not choose out of these two for my firm choice for university. I don't really know which one would be better for me so I need a bit of help!

Business will focus on the running of the business. Included in this will be organisation theory, marketing, economics and you will also touch on some accounting. There will be other modules but you can find that out by looking at what modules your course offers.
Finance focuses on funding projects and the issues of raising finance. You will consider the time value of money (money worth more today than tomorrow), risk of investing, whether to take on debt or raise money through equity. etc.
Hard to explain to you without being technical. I am currently doing Acc and finance and I do modules in --> Maths, statistics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, computing, 2* accounting modules, 2* finance modules, English and law. Just to give you an idea.
