Accounting and finance are essential areas of expertise for many people seeking high level careers in the professions, commerce or academia. This course will provide students with a theoretical background and applied knowledge at Masters level. It is designed to enhance intellectual and transferable skills, including presentation, research, analysis and appraisal.

On completion, postgraduate students will be conversant with theoretical issues in accountancy and finance, and be able to apply accounting theory and practice to real issues faced in day-to-day operations.

The course consists of taught modules, research methods and a supervised dissertation. Students can also enrol to take ACCA or CIMA professional modules at a reduced rate.

The course aims to further the knowledge of accounting and finance in a manner which will provide a sound framework for those wishing to pursue further study, or to enhance employment opportunities. Accountancy and finance professionals have central roles in all types and sizes of organisations whether in the UK or abroad.

This Masters degree addresses many of the current accounting issues present in business and how they relate to the wider social, technical and economic challenges that businesses face. It also offers the opportunity to study a specialist interest. The programme assumes that students will enter with a good deal of technical accounting knowledge, having either studied accounting at undergraduate or professional level.
