In today’s globalised economy, standardised financial reporting is of utmost importance. This programme is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop the skills required to progress to senior positions in business.

Academically rigorous, the MSc Accountancy programme provides students with the opportunity to both explore accounting practice in the context of contemporary theory and research and make sound financial judgements and recommendations.

Course content is reviewed regularly in line with industry practice, allowing students the chance to develop a thorough understanding of the International Financial Reporting Standards currently used by professionals around the world.

MSc Accounting students will be exempted from all CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting papers (C01, C02, C03, C04 and C05) plus P1 – Management Accounting, an Operational level CIMA professional qualification subject, which is a case study.
