Course content

This taught programme will advance your knowledge beyond the material that you will have encountered in your undergraduate studies. It is research-led and will draw heavily on academic literature.

In the first term you will explore contemporary issues in accounting and corporate finance and develop key skills in both quantitative and qualitative research methods. These skills will prepare you for the more advanced units taught in the second term. The final part of the MSc is a research-based dissertation. For those planning on undertaking a PhD, either at Bristol or elsewhere, the dissertation represents an important bridge between taught and advanced research studies.

This programme is for students who have an upper second-class degree in accounting and/or finance. Students with a finance degree are required to have studied accounting to an appropriate level.
