Course content


A fast-paced, intensive and highly practical master’s degree programme for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of accounting in the global context.

This master’s programme demands a great deal from its students, so it’s ideal if you want to cover a lot of ground in a short time. You’ll learn to operate effectively within the global marketplace, enabling you to pursue a career in accounting or to further your knowledge of accounting standards. You may have just graduated in accounting or a related subject, or perhaps you’re already an accountant but want to develop into broader management roles.

This master’s course is linked to SAP. You’ll also learn using Bloomberg terminals and S&P Capital IQ – which are routinely used in major organisations around the word. And where better to study accounting than in the heart of London’s financial district?

Why choose this programme?

Gain exposure to a technology-rich, fully simulated trading floor – mirroring that of a top investment bank – including Bloomberg trading software.

This master’s course offers all the flexibility of both full-time and part-time study, as well as 2 start dates – making it easier for you if you choose continue working while you study.

With the support of our helpful, experienced tutors, you’ll develop advanced analytical skills, clarity of perspective on global business, the ability to think more strategically, and communication and research skills. These are all in high demand among employers in the private, public, and third sectors.

The curriculum for this course is aligned to major accounting bodies, such as ACCA, ICAEW and CIMA. Choose this course and you’ll be well on your way to qualifying as an accountant – or, if you’re already qualified, to reaching higher and wider in your career.

Future prospects

“Aimed at graduates with an interest in accounting and finance, this course prepares students for a number of roles in the industry. Students get experience using industry software such as SAP, Bloomberg and Capital IQ.” - Course Leader, MSc Professional Accounting
