Course content

Most people probably think that research in accounting and finance is "all about numbers", but that really couldn't be further from the truth! Indeed, there is much more to accounting and finance research. This course allows students the opportunity to study the advanced aspects of accounting or finance with staff that have a sound knowledge of the technical aspects of their subjects.

This course is specifically designed to prepare you for further study such as a PhD. Under the supervision of our highly-rated Accountancy team you’ll have a wide choice of modules allowing you to specialise in your chosen area of focus.

You’ll gain the skills you need for your doctorate by studying extended versions of Research Methods & Methodology and Quantitative/Econometric Methods. Uniquely this course offers you the opportunity to undertake a Directed Reading module so you’ll pursue a programme of study specially designed for you by your PhD supervisory team.

We welcome students from the UK and elsewhere to our stimulating, supportive, friendly and well-organised campus. Dundee is among the fastest risers in the 2017 Guardian University Rankings and has also been rated the best in Scotland by some of the most influential higher education surveys.
