Our MSC Finance and Accounting is designed to enhance your professional career, develop your knowledge and understanding of the challenges involved in keeping a business liquid, competitive and profitable, and introduce you to issues around ethical and sustainable financial models. You’ll develop the theoretical and applied expertise to meet the challenges of working in financial environments.
Learn the tools of the trade in our Financial Markets Trading Room, which gives real-time pricing and news feeds on shares, bonds, global indexes and interest rates. You'll learn the principles, strategies and techniques used by the world’s biggest players. We’ll show you how to use research to gain insight, evaluate ideas and make decisions. You'll learn how to interpret accounting reports and the key skills essential for financial competence.
Whatever career you choose to pursue, these skills will equip you for the future; entrepreneurs need financial insight to evaluate opportunities effectively and deal with banks and for a successful career in either an SME or multi-national, you will need to ground your decisions within a sound financial framework.
The techniques you acquire on our MSc Finance and Accounting course will give you a set of practical skills, as well as the academic know-how.
You can apply to base your dissertation on project work with an external organisation. Recent projects include nominal group structure for a multinational engineering firm, and developing a funding strategy for a Sheffield-based capital investment programme.
