The recent evolution of the financial environment driven by liberalization, globalization, and modernization of financial markets, has significantly increased the importance of the financial function of modern businesses. Particularly for Greece, the process of financial integration with the EU and the thriving financial markets are major sources of change in the financial environment. In this changing environment, the financial function becomes the most important factor affecting business competitiveness. Hence, today, studies in Accounting and Finance constitute a fundamental part of any curriculum in Business Administration.

The Accounting and Finance course aims to provide students with the theoretical, technical and empirical background necessary for financial problem solving and financial decision making within the complex and changing business environment.

The programme is based on extensive application of financial analysis techniques in key areas of business finance such as financial statement preparation and analysis, managerial accounting, and financial management. An important and particularly interesting part of the programme focuses on techniques that facilitate the analysis of investment in financial markets, namely security and portfolio analysis. Finally, particular emphasis is given to the analysis of the banking sector and the fundamentals of bank management. It must be emphasized that the techniques used in the accounting and financial analysis are supported by the appropriate computer software.

The Business Administration and Economics Department, in association with the well-staffed Computer Science Department of CITY College, University of York Europe Campus, is prepared to assist students in acquiring and mastering all necessary skills and expertise.
