Course content

This course will give you an international perspective of the theory and practice of accounting. It focuses particularly on the global harmonisation of accounting standards and the impact of leading standard-setting authorities. You’ll be exploring one of the biggest ever changes to accounting – the move to International Financial Reporting Standards – and have the opportunity to conduct research under the supervision of a leading researcher in the field.

At the University of Dundee you’ll be using contemporary research methodology and techniques to explore international corporate reporting practices. You’ll gain a detailed insight into the issues facing preparers and users of accounting information in our globalised reporting environment.

This programme is ideal for accountancy graduates who want to gain expertise in contemporary international issues. It’s also a first class preparation for those seeking to go on to further research or PhD study.

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.
