AbstractIn this chapter the Authors take the accounting and finance student out of a subject specific approach to finance and accounting, going beyond the numbers into learning about self-leadership and the skills employers look for in future employees including communications skills, creativity and problem-solving skills. The case for these skills is made through review of literature associated with finance and accounting from an employer’s perspective. Discussing the use of projects and independent study whilst at university, the development of authenticity, responsibility and the capacity to self-lead is used to support skill enhancement.
