About this MSc programme

The MSc Accounting and Finance has an established reputation for excellence extending over five decades. It provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of key areas of accounting and finance. It is appropriate for applicants interested in careers across a wide range of sectors and organisations in the fields of business, consulting and finance, and provides thorough preparation for academic research in accounting or finance.

The programme assumes an academic background in financial reporting, management accounting, finance, economics and quantitative methods prior to entry. As a condition of admission, you may be required to take one or more courses in these areas to strengthen your background.

Through your course selection, you can emphasise either accounting or finance, or can choose an equally balanced programme across the two areas. You will also be able to specialise in a designated pathway in finance, international accounting and finance, or accounting and financial management.
