Course content

The programme is for recent graduates with first degrees in accounting, finance, accounting and finance, management, economics, sociology, political science and other social science subjects. The programme is designed to provide a career entry opportunity for full-time students as well as a career development opportunity for accountants, auditors, practicing managers, business consultants and finance experts from various backgrounds, to enhance and develop their accounting and finance skills. Recent financial crises induced by various accounting scandals necessitate the qualitative training of highly skilled accounting/finance experts for the sustainability of today’s modern business. The programme aims to balance theoretical analysis with practical application to develop a critical and questioning approach to the conceptual underpinnings of accounting and finance.

Students will gain the knowledge and skills required to meet the expectations/requirements of modern businesses in dealing with accounting/finance issues. The programme can also serve as a springboard into other careers e.g. management consultancy.

This programme is accredited by CIMA – Chartered Institute of Management Accountants where you are eligible for the CIMA Masters Gateway – a fast track route for masters in accounting students where you enter CIMA at the Management Case Study bypassing eleven exams.
