The MSc Accounting and Management offers you the best of both worlds from an academic study point of view and the range of career options that will be available to you.
From an academic perspective you can study a range of Management subjects to provide you with the key skills that are necessary for a modern business environment but also develop your Accounting skills in much more depth that would be possible through studying a MSc Management or MBA course. The exposure to two units in Financial and Management Accounting in semester 1 with the ability to study one of these to a more advanced level in semester 2 means that you can elect that stream of Accountancy that appeals to you most once you have experienced the subject. You will have a number of optional courses offered to you from a range of Management, Accounting and Finance units which enable you to focus on areas that are of interest to you.
From a career perspective the MSc Accounting & Management will not only provide you with the skills of modern management, but the study of accountancy will ensure that you are able to comprehend the significance of good accounting advice when it is provided to you. You should also feel more confident about discussing this with qualified accountants working within your organisation when important strategic decisions are being debated.
The MSc Accounting & Management, with a range of options to tailor the MSc as you wish, provides you with pathways into careers that would normally be available to MSc Accounting & Finance students or MSc Management students. The blend of Accounting and Management provides you with a MSc that offers the best of both worlds.
Full-time study on our MSc programmes follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period.
Teaching takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
There are a number of modules both compulsory and optional that you can take.
