The MSc Accounting & Finance degree provides industry relevant accounting and finance skills.
This Masters in Accounting and Finance will provide you with the knowledge, skills and independent thinking abilities which are essential for developing a career in the accounting sector, within banking and financial institutions, or in the field of corporate finance. Given the nature of modern business, this MSc may also be useful to graduates seeking to develop a career in general management or management consultancy.
The course is a conversion Master’s course for graduates who have completed a first degree in any field of study and who now wish to develop a career in accounting. It aims to produce independent thinkers who are able to deal with the complexity of the accounting and finance challenges facing organisations, either domestically or internationally. It is studied full-time over one year and degree completion will result in exemptions from examination papers F1-F4 of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
We offer an extended Master's route, starting in September, on our traditional 1-year route which incorporates a 12 month placement. This route has a duration of 24 months, and will follow the same teaching programme as the 1 year course.
