A new accountancy degree is being launched by Nottingham University Business School in collaboration with professional services firm PwC and the ICAEW. The BSc Accountancy Flying Start programme will begin recruiting later in 2013.
The degree will give aspiring accountants a competitive edge by providing paid work placements with PwC’s Assurance practice — with the chance of being offered a full-time position by the firm at the end.
Students on the programme will qualify more quickly as a chartered accountant and will get both the traditional university experience as a full-time student and business exposure through the paid work placements at PwC, one of the Big Four accountancy firms.
Professor Martin Binks, dean of Nottingham University Business School said: ‘We are delighted to be working in partnership with other prestigious organisations to offer a truly integrated learning experience, which is enhanced by our unique global presence and perspective. Students will benefit from world-leading academic insights from the Business School, as well as leading-edge professional practice from time on placement with PwC and the endorsement of the ICAEW.’
