Description

Advertisement

The MSc is designed for AIA, ACCA CIMA or ACA graduates and aims to provide a means by which the continuing professional and personal needs of accounting practitioners may be met. Specifically, it aims to extend and enhance the understanding and competence gained via professional qualification and to enhance the ability of students to think strategically about management and organisational change. This top-up course may be taken by part-time study (day or evening) in Northampton or by distance learning worldwide. Distance learning students are supported by CD-ROM material and online.

The programme is designed to broaden your specialist knowledge gained at the professional level. In particular the module on 'Managing Strategic Change' takes an in-depth look at both leading edge strategic issues and change processes. The module covers the business tools, techniques and concepts used in scanning the business environment for potential changes, analysing the potential implications of differing scenarios, strategies and processes before developing responses to potential changes. 'Research Methods' covers the introduction to research, types of research methodology, formulating and planning a research project, data collection and analysis and presentation of research findings.

Following successful completion of the taught modules, members undertake a dissertation related to an aspect of strategic significance for the organisation.
