The School of Business & Economics at Richmond University is pleased to announce that their BSc Accounting & Finance programme has formally received accreditation from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) the global body for professional accountants.

Commenting on this achievement, Professor Adrian Wilkins, Dean of School said “this is an important development for the school and for our students who appreciate the growing importance of professional accreditation in their degree programmes. At Richmond University we aim to provide a high quality business- focused education and we wish all our students on the BSc Accounting & Finance programme every success in their studies.”
