Economics, Accounting and Finance

This programme aims to take graduate students with only limited knowledge of economics, accounting and/or finance and provide them with an understanding of the key concepts and contemporary issues in the field.

You will read and assess the current literature in the main areas of economics, accounting and finance and form independent, informed judgements about it. You will then plan and embark on a programme of independent research (under appropriate supervision), undertaking a thorough literature review in a prescribed topic area or analysing economic, accounting or financial data and relating the results to theory.

Entry requirements

A first or good upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) that demonstrates mathematical ability.

See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.

Course modules

You will complete four compulsory units, before choosing four from a list of optional units in economics, accounting and finance. The final part of the MSc is a project-based dissertation of up to 15,000 words. A choice of dissertation subject areas is provided and you choose your specific topic from one of these broader areas. Many of the dissertations are literature-based and you will be expected to acquire and use literature search skills for a range of electronic and traditional sources.
