Thomas, Accounting and Business Management
The opportunity to gain recognition in two subject areas through the combined honours courses offered by KBS greatly appealed to me, as I was unsure which subject I favoured more. This meant that I was able to pursue my interests in both Accounting and Business Management. The teaching and support provided by KBS is exceptional. All staff I have encountered are approachable, professional and have a genuine desire to see you succeed. This makes approaching complex topics and assignments much easier due to the knowledge that help is there if you need it.
Keele is a fantastic place to live and study. The support available from tutors and staff and the relaxed campus setting make the transition to university life much easier. Aside from the obvious accounting knowledge which I have gained from my degree, my studies in Business Management have given me a rounded understanding of organisations and the wider business environment. This will hopefully allow me to gain greater understanding of the effects of change upon a business and will ultimately make me a better accountant in the long term. Having a personal tutor is also great for discussing non-academic problems and the careers and employability services is a fantastic resource - especially for final year students.
