You will also study both financial and cost accounting, increasing your knowledge of financial decision making in areas such as product costing and investing.
Through the programme you will:
• develop in-depth understanding of operations management and accounting relating to the manufacturing and service sectors
• learn how to apply this knowledge in a thorough, systematic, informed and creative way in order to advance the effectiveness and competitiveness of organisations
• develop knowledge and understanding of how an integrated approach to operations and supply chain management can impact on business performance
• appreciate the importance of organisational context in operations management, including product/service type, mode of service, size of company, type of industry, stage in the business life cycle and degree of internationalisation.
Organisations are constantly seeking to reduce costs, shorten production and distribution times and better manage risk. Effective management of these functions is crucial and qualified practitioners are increasingly in demand.
This programme will equip you to pursue a career in either operations management or management accounting in a variety of sectors such as health, manufacturing, transport, engineering and purchasing.
The degree is closely aligned to the MSc Operations and Supply Chain Management but also includes both financial and cost accounting, giving students with an interest in finance a greater knowledge of financial decision making in areas such as product costing and investing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, is preferred. We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with lower or non-standard qualifications who have relevant industry experience.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.0 in all sub-sections), or equivalent.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
