right4me Accounting/Finance – Insights Into University Modules & The Learning Experience With Norwich Business School (UEA) & Henley Business School (University of Reading)
September 29 @ 14:15 - 15:15
right4me is a series of subject specific webinars for Year 12 & 13 students, and equivalent. The sessions support students’ current studies and interests by giving an insight into curriculum areas covered in university modules. In addition, by hearing from 2 universities for 30 minutes each, students will appreciate how the further study of Accounting/Finance can vary between institutions, contributing to the depth of their HE research and assisting informed decision making.
In this session we will be joined by two universities, including Henley Business School, based at University of Reading, and Norwich Business School, based at University of East Anglia, who will begin by exploring the fascinating academic content of their Accounting/Finance degree programmes in the form of a mini lecture based on one of their undergraduate modules.
Each university will then offer an insight into the teaching and learning experience related to these modules and to their Accounting/Finance degrees more generally.
The respective talks and speakers will appear below when confirmed. There will be time and opportunity for participation and questions.
- Norwich Business School (UEA): James Armes will present content from the Introduction to Accounting first year module including a mini taster lecture discussing Accounting for decision making: How Management Accountants can help businesses understand the financial implications and risk of business decision making. James will involve participants to give them a direct insight into what the learning experience looks like at Norwich Business School.
- Henley Business School (Reading): Dr Gita Persand will explore capital market efficiency by discussing The Efficient Market Hypothesis. This is taught to first-year Henley Business School undergraduates in the Spring term on the module “Introductory Finance”.
Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of school closures.
As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.
Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students and equivalent studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Accounting/Finance and related disciplines.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the 2 topics and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Accounting/Finance at university level.
The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard.
