If you’re looking to take your accounting and finance skills to the next level and enhance your international employability, then our MSc International Accounting and Finance is perfect for you. This course will develop your understanding of key concepts, enhance your technical abilities and help you appreciate the crucial role accounting and finance plays in organisations, by determining strategy and impacting decision making.
Through this programme you will learn advanced-level theory and concepts used in accounting and finance. We’ll develop your technical skills in these areas but also focus on providing you with an in-depth knowledge of accounting and its place in today’s global corporate environment.
We explore how accounting and finance determines and impacts an organisations’ strategic policy and decision making. This will give you an understanding of the key principles and challenges of financial management decisions. You’ll gain an insight into the application of accounting and finance within international organisations. We examine case studies to illustrate how firms are using certain tools and techniques in practise, allowing you to apply your learning to real-life business scenarios and gain a critical perspective on the wider economic environment.
You’ll also gain a broad understanding of international business. You’ll learn about the different perspectives on international business, look at key theories on international trade and foreign direct investment. You’ll also examine how firms are structured and operate across borders. This will equip you with knowledge which is extremely beneficial when looking to pursue management roles with international companies.
With an unrivalled reputation for teaching excellence and graduate employability, Aston can put you on the right path to secure a senior management role in accounting or finance. You’ll be studying at an elite business school – one of just 1% of business schools in the world, thanks to our AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA accreditation which can help to enhance your career prospects and boost your earning potential.
This course is also a fantastic stepping stone towards becoming a qualified accountant. Several modules are accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). This means you will benefit from exemptions, which reduces the amount of ACCA or CIMA professional training and exams you’ll need to take to become a fully qualified accountant once in employment.
You can choose to study this course as part of our double degree programme.
The Professional Development Programme (PDP) is an integrated module which runs throughout the course and focuses on your professional development and employability, giving you the opportunity to identify, develop and apply the key skills you gain throughout the year. You'll have the opportunity to develop your academic skills, build a portfolio of professional business skills, or study abroad at one of our international partners, undertake an internship placement in the UK, or overseas, or get involved in a global business challenge simulation.
