Hoping to go to uni in september 2020 but i am stuck between courses. I was originally going to apply for management but then came across an accounting and finance course and the modules looked really interesting. I'm worried after university that employers would look upon an accounting and finance degree more favourably because management is less 'specific', but i think i'd still enjoy a management degree more based on researching the modules at various universities. any advice is appreciated!!

I don't think it makes a lot of difference to employers. Possible benefits of studying A+F:

- exemptions from professional exams
- having some knowledge which might help you find your first job if this is outside of grad schemes, and year in industry placements.

Major benefit of management is that it is far more 'open' and likely to give a broader range of modules so as your interests develop you can focus accordingly.

Go to some Open Days and listen to the subject presentations for all these subjects.
These are far more detailed than the snippets in a prospectus, and you have the opportunity to ask questions about 'careers' etc.

To add to the above, its worth letting people know which A levels you are taking, what you like, your target grades and whether there is a particular type of university you are attracted to as there are many courses out there you may not have heard of or considered which could really suit your aspirations.

Also its worth looking for joint subject degrees - any of these subjects combined, or with another subject (Law, languages etc), or with Study Abroad or a placement. All adds to your eventual employability.
