This programme is unique in the UK. It provides a route to obtain a MSc degree by production of a research thesis of a maximum of 40,000 words over a period of registration of 1 year (full time) or 2 years (part time). The subject matter of the thesis must be related to taxation, but the focus of the specific topic chosen would be by agreement between the student and the supervisors as part of the application and registration process.

Course details

The University of Birmingham has a long tradition of business research, with roots dating back to the appointment of the country's first Professor of Accounting, we have a longstanding history of researching and teaching in the area of accounting and finance. Taxation has been a field we have taught and researched actively for more than 20 years. You would therefore be joining and benefiting from a very active research community in participating in this programme.

Where the research subject matter chosen lends itself, students may also become members of the CHASM research centre – a joint venture between the Business School and the School of Social Policy, one of the leading such Schools in the UK. This Centre focuses on personal asset management, financial capability, inclusion and welfare inequality issues producing policy relevant output in each of these areas, so subjects including personal and wealth taxation and the impact of tax on the individual and household would fit into this Centre’s interest. Other subjects are of course however, equally suitable to this programme.

A research proposal is necessary as part of the application process for this programme (find out more about producing a suitable research proposal), and a Skype or telephone interview (or face to face if needed) is likely to be required as part of the registration process to be accepted onto this programme.

If accepted, students can expect to have two supervisors, one a subject expert in the chosen area of taxation (who would act as the lead supervisor), and one with wider taxation knowledge to support the contextualisation and application of the work more generally. The subjects chosen for the work would be expected to study the leading edge of thinking in the various fields of taxation. Where needed research training will be made available to the student.

Support and training

Birmingham Business School provides dedicated facilities, resources and support to postgraduate students and early career researchers which includes The Midlands Graduate School and Doctoral Training Centres and Programmes. Click to find out more.

Research interests

The areas of Taxation research undertaken by our staff include:

  • Impact of taxation on the decision-making behaviour of individuals and businesses;
  • role for and development of tax policy (particularly wealth and capital taxation);
  • taxation in global trade;
  • tax education;
  • tax law;
  • tax history;
  • Philosophies of tax.

The acceptable research topic areas must be closely related to taxation. For example, to include one or more of the following topics;

  • The impact of taxation on the decision-making behaviour of individuals and businesses (e.g. consumption behaviours, tax planning etc);
  • role for and development of effective tax policy;
  • development of tax administration systems;
  • tax education;
  • international taxation;
  • comparative taxation;
  • the politics of taxation;
  • economic psychology of taxation;
  • taxation in developing countries;
  • understanding patterns of tax compliance, avoidance and evasion;
  • tax and governance;
  • tax and social policy (other tax topics may also be suitable);
  • institutions of taxation;
  • adjudication or dispute resolution.

Personal experience of working in the proposed topic area of study is desirable.

Please note that while applicants should create a reasoned proposal of study as part of the application process, it should be expected that this would be refined in conjunction with the allocated supervisors if successful in being offered a place on this programme.

Employability

If I gain a postgraduate research degree from Birmingham Business School, what are my career prospects?

Birmingham’s Business graduates are sought after by a wide range of financial, commercial and public sector employers. They can typically offer a wide range of skills including analytical & research, numeracy, communication, team working and political & commercial awareness.

For those entering employment after graduating, traditionally popular areas include banking, accountancy/professional services and financial services. Many of our programmes involve studying towards a professional qualification. Outside of these areas, options include teaching abroad and retail management. Many Masters by Research graduates also go on to forge successful academic careers of their own in teaching and academic research.

What type of career assistance is available to Masters by Research students in Birmingham Business School?

The University of Birmingham has invested heavily in careers and employability support. The Careers Team have been praised for enhanced developments within their team and for adopting a model of integrated employability and internship support; something that has been rolled out and implemented across all Schools and Colleges at the University.

Masters by Research students at Birmingham Business School will benefit from this additional investment; the school now has its own well qualified dedicated Careers Team to support students with employment opportunities, work placements, internships and how to succeed at interview. In addition, a range of career management, personal development and employer events are run each year by the Careers in Business Team to help you make the most of the opportunities available.

A course that makes business sense

  • Prepare yourself for senior finance roles and equip yourself with a highly marketable combination of strategic finance and leadership skills
  • Make a more substantial contribution to the commercial and operational areas of your organisation
  • Develop your finance and leadership competencies so you become more noticeable as a manager who can lead with a financial perspective
  • Take a flexible study route to a highly regarded masters qualification - with intensive blocks of study taking place over six weekends.
  • If you’re an ambitious financial manager ready to pursue your next career move, this course is for you. It bridges the gap between the technical skills of the accountant and the practical leadership skills needed to succeed in a senior managerial role.
  • Relevant to professionals working in the public and private sector alike, it is particularly valuable if you are:
  • A qualified accountant and feel you’ve reached a ‘glass ceiling’. You’ll gain critical skills throughout the course which will set you apart from others.
  • An aspiring or current senior finance/senior manager keen to progress your career to reach chief financial officer level or the equivalent. You may have extensive financial knowledge acquired through experience, but no professional accounting qualifications.
  • Senior finance managers are increasingly seen as key drivers for creating value, implementing and actively informing strategy. To be effective at this level it’s vital to understand the organisation’s vision and lead across different functions.­ This integration of competences is often missing at various levels of management and in many business sectors.
  • Our MSc Financial Leadership is distinctive because it focuses on a powerful combination of strategic finance and leadership skills. You’ll gain knowledge that extends beyond the core functions of finance and embraces a more holistic and strategic view of business. Ultimately, you will make a difference to the success of your organisation while accelerating your personal career progression.
  • With extensive use of real-life case studies, the course is delivered by leading academics, research experts and practising senior finance and leadership professionals. Their wealth of experience will encourage you to consider a variety of perspectives and will enrich your learning experience.
  • Derby Business School collaborates with CPA Australia, a professional accounting body which works closely with a number of employers worldwide, including many blue-chip UK based organisations. The CPA is well respected globally, focuses on providing development for strategic business leaders, and is expanding its reach within the UK.
  • The MSc Financial Leadership qualification is currently awaiting a decision from CPA Australia to confirm what exemptions can be achieved on the CPA professional programme.
