Course content

Course outline

The MSc in Accounting and Finance is designed for managers of the future who recognise the need for businesses to service a wider range of stakeholders. The course consists of a rigorous and intellectually demanding study of the ‘core’ disciplines of Financial Reporting, Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance, Research Methods, Strategic Management Accounting and Auditing together with a wide range of options. The foundation module Corporate Governance looks at the fundamental relation between shareholders and stockholders and explores topical issues of accountability, transparency, corporate social responsibility and environmental responsibility to prepare you for the study of Accounting and Finance from a wider societal perspective. A dissertation, which forms a substantial part of the assessment of the degree, will allow you to develop your interests in either mainstream or wider business and societal aspects of Accounting and Finance.
