Months of entry
This course will equip you with the latest knowledge and skill set needed for a successful career within the accounting and finance sector. We have had graduates go on to work at companies including KPMG, Deloitte and RBS to name a few.
This programme has been designed to enhance the specialist knowledge and skills of graduates who have already undertaken substantial accounting and finance studies at undergraduate degree level. Alternatively, if you have successfully achieved all of the ACCA Fundamental level papers you are eligible to apply.
The programme covers a number of core themes including International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), corporate reporting, corporate governance and risk management. Professional ethics, alongside the application of tools and models of finance theory, to complex strategic corporate finance transactions are central to the programme. In addition, you will develop knowledge in implementing strategy in the context of both the external environment and internal business capabilities, and be able to evaluate performance implications of a given strategy.
You will have the opportunity to engage with current business issues through specialist input and the completion of independent study. Your dissertation will normally take the form of an empirical piece of research.
"The MSc Accounting and Finance course allowed me to develop and build on my understanding of the theory learned at undergraduate level. It provided me with a greater insight into what is required to complete the professional exams. I found the lecturers very helpful and welcoming during my time at MMU. They delivered the course effectively and engaged well with the students." Raees Patel
