Accounting and Finance MSc

Programme Overview

Our MSc in Accounting and Finance provides an understanding of both the theoretical frameworks and practical skills required of accounting and finance professionals. The programme also addresses the skills needed by those working in multinational corporations, in order to cope with an increasingly complex global financial environment.

The programme’s core modules provide not only a rigorous treatment of the relevant theory, but also the quantitative techniques necessary to understand the literature and undertake empirical investigations in the areas of accounting and finance.

You will gain an understanding of the basic principles and advanced knowledge of financial accounting systems used around the world, as well as a complete introduction to financial theory through a study of the problems of investing capital. You will also be introduced to the techniques of econometrics and undertake a substantial course in corporate finance.

Our optional modules offer you a broader perspective on the subject, allowing you to tailor the programme to areas that are of particular relevance to your interests or career aspirations.
