This programme is offered fully online and allows you to flexibly fit your studies around your schedule. You can choose to study individual modules on a pay-as-you-go basis and build up your qualification at your own pace.
Each module runs over a 10-week session followed by an assessment submission point, with the exception of the Capstone Project module, which runs over two 10-week sessions with two assessment points.
The programme uses Icarus, an award-winning simulation developed by UCL School of Management academics, as an experiential learning tool analysing and exploring a wide range of accounting, finance and strategic management related challenges.
The programme is offered online and is fully supported by a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). All essential resources, activities, videos, discussions and support are provided through the VLE, which can be accessed from a range of devices.
You can fit your studies around your work commitments to complete the programme successfully and there is no need to purchase additional textbooks.
The programme is delivered online and there is no requirement to come to the UK as part of your studies. Our flexible online programme allows you to work around your own schedule and leads to a globally-recognised qualification.
