BA (Hons) Accounting and FinanceWhat do our students say?
BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance
Nguyen Binh Mai Suong
2010 Accounting & Finance Cohort

Accounting & Finance is “the one” because I possess some characteristics that would benefit me in this field. I see myself as an organised and detail-oriented person (sometimes kind of a perfectionist). My interest in analysing and exploring the underlying reasons for financial trends also led me to pursue this major. I set a goal of studying at an international university since I was in high school and BUV was one of my top choices. The two main reasons were the opportunity to get an internship from the 1st year (I’m lucky to have my first internship in Y1S1) and a British degree right in Vietnam.

 

Internship opportunities provide us with hands-on experience to familiarise ourselves with the industry and map our career path. I’m grateful because BUV usually holds a lot of workshops and extra classes for us to learn new skills such as Microsoft Office and Digital Marketing, hence gaining a competitive edge when applying for a job.
