The MSc Accounting and Management from University of Southampton 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.
