Course content

This programme provides a solid understanding of corporate accountability issues involved in international finance and will improve students’ expertise and transferable skills for work in the finance and business sectors.

Through the programme students will develop knowledge of finance, business and corporate accountability, and acquire a critical awareness of current issues in both professional practice and the academic discipline.

The programme will build understanding of, and the ability to evaluate, a comprehensive range of research techniques used in the area of finance and corporate accountability, and illustrate how these techniques are put into practice. It will also develop students’ ability to evaluate critically academic and professional research in the corporate accountability and business environment and gain an opportunity to carry out original research on a relevant topic through a dissertation.
