Academic Course Leader: Accounting and Finance (Undergraduate)

Business, Entrepreneurship and Financial Management

I use a practical approach when teaching finance and accounting which means students are always enjoying what would otherwise have been very technical concepts and techniques.


Following academic and professional qualifications in accountancy and corporate treasury, I spent 8 years practicising whilst teaching in top accountancy colleges in London. I have also worked with a global consultancy to deliver executive education on the adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards to international audiences. 

As Academic Course Leader for our undergraduate accounting courses I manage the programme content to ensure that graduates obtain the range of competences and skills required for successful careers in accounting, finance and business management.
