Entry requirements

An honours degree with an 'excellent' or 'very good' classification from a good university in accounting, finance or a related discipline and with some evidence of mathematical ability. Exceptional candidates with degrees in other quantitative disciplines (eg economics or mathematics) or in business studies will be considered, but they must have taken a significant number of courses in accounting and finance during their degree. Appropriate and acceptable professional qualifications are also considered. Work experience is not required. However, relevant work experience may increase your chances of acceptance.

Course content

Designed for those with a quantitative background, this programme is both academically rigorous and closely in line with professional practice. It is especially useful for graduates with work experience in accounting looking to gain essential practical skills in finance and, of course, vice versa. Although the core, compulsory courses ensure a good balance between both accounting and finance study, the option courses give students opportunities to specialise tailoring their studies towards their chosen career.

That career could be in areas as diverse as international accounting, international regulations, investment and security analysis, portfolio management, management accounting, corporate finance and corporate restructuring.
