Course content

Huddersfield Business School is excited to announce a new portfolio of courses that are currently being formalised. These are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to be influential and successful in a rapidly changing global environment. Our new portfolio covers a wide variety of subject areas offering courses in traditional business and management alongside new and innovative topics. Although this specific course will not be available in 2019, a similar range of courses will follow covering contemporary topics that suit the changing external environment. Our new courses should be available to view online from mid-November, however in the meantime please do get in touch if you would like to enquire about any of our Business School courses. This course allows students holding appropriate accounting professional qualifications to top-up to full Master’s level. The course comprises an introduction to research methods (which will include consideration of current issues in accounting and finance) and a dissertation. The Research Methods module must be completed before undertaking the dissertation. The module is taught through a series of seminars adopting a range of learning strategies; including formal tutor-led delivery and student-centred exercises, supplemented by direct reading. You are supervised during the preparation of the research proposal and the dissertation. Dissertations are normally submitted for assessment within one year. You are assigned a personal tutor who will form an overview of your progress, and who will be available for advice and feedback. Graduates from this course are ideally placed for further academic study to PhD level, or careers in universities and colleges, industry, commerce, and financial services.
