Jenny Borthorpe-Booth, Accounting and Finance

Keele is a very good university with a high percentage of graduate employment. The friendliness of the staff in the School and the support given throughout the whole of the three years was also great. The broad range of modules available, really helped to broaden my horizons. I have had a great experience at Keele and my course has developed my knowledge and understanding not only of accounting but economics as well, and helped develop my group work and presentation skills.

Keele also provided my with the opportunity to take an internship. It is a five year contract with BAE, three years of which are completing the CIMA qualification in three different locations working in Financial Reporting, Management Accounting and Project Accounting.  The final two years are completing management training attending many workshops and conferences.  At the end of the five years I will be based in a financial managers role.  There is a lot of support with a buddy system and holiday for studying.
