Summary

Our Accounting and Finance MSc is closely in line with professional practice and is an ideal fit if you are from a quantitative background.

This is a programme that will challenge you academically, and, through practical applications and case studies, one that will set you up for future roles within Accounting and Finance.

Industry connections Studying accounting and finance in Edinburgh will give you the opportunity to be based at the heart of the UK's second largest financial centre. Many of Europe's leading financial institutions have their headquarters here, a fact that we make full use of on the MSc programme.

We regularly bring guest speakers to the School to talk directly to Accounting and Finance students on real, current practice.

The School also maintains good relationships with a number of accounting and finance professionals who will be on hand to provide advice on research and career opportunities. Essential connections like these characterise the dynamic nature of this programme.

Our strong connection to industry is exemplified by our work in the Centre for Financial Markets Research, and the Institute of Public Sector Accounting Research.

Bringing together leading academics and practitioners, the centres are a keen theatre of debate, creating new thoughts, new ideas for both the theoretical study and practical application of accounting, finance and investment.
