Summary

If you wish to pursue a career in accounting, or require knowledge of accounting in your role as a budget holder, our MSc Accounting and Finance provides a thorough understanding of the key areas of accounting and financial management for non-accounting graduates.

We seek students from business/management, accounting and finance, or those with a quantitative background. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and range in age and experience, so you will find our class discussions a stimulating arena in which to explore new ideas and topics.

On this master's degree in accounting and finance, strong emphasis is placed on analysis and interpretation using case study and live company analysis. On completion of the course, you will be able to understand, apply and critically assess a wide range of accounting and financial theories.
