BSc. Accounting and finance

The BSc Accounting and Finance degree was introduced at Universal College Lahore in 1998. This programme aims to provide a thorough grounding in Accounting and Finance, within a strong social science framework. The courses are designed to ensure the development of necessary critical skills to enable students to undertake a variety of occupations where an understanding of Accounting and Finance will be useful. The London School of Economics and Political Science is working with professional accountancy bodies such as the ACCA, CIMA and ICEAW so that students wishing to gain professional accountancy qualifications after this degree can get exemptions for some of the course covered.
