The MSc Finance and Accounting provides an in-depth grounding for your professional and/or academic career in finance, business and accounting. Previous students studying this course have taken up appointments in large financial institutions, national government departments, and international banks, and excelled in their roles.

This course develops your strategic understanding and critical thinking of the main finance principles and theories. These support and inform corporate financial decisions, upon which modern business decision-making is based. In addition, it provides you with an opportunity to develop practical skills and a theoretical understanding of finance for international business.

You will explore the importance of accounting information in the management of corporations, as well as a variety of approaches that small firms follow to secure finance and thrive in the hyper-competitive market. You will also have the opportunity to evaluate the impact of organisational theories on corporations in an international context.

You will develop your research skills and learn to apply this knowledge through an independent piece of research in an accounting or finance related topic. The course is taught by highly research-active staff who have embedded their research into the programme.
