About the programme

You will develop the skills needed to succeed in today’s dynamic business environment, enhance your critical thinking ability, and deepen your knowledge of financial and management accounting to senior level. The course will maximise exemptions from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to further enhance your future employability.

The programme aims to:
• develop your critical, analytical problem-based learning skills and transferable skills to prepare you for a career in financial accounting

• give you a solid understanding of current financial accounting theory and practice and future developments internationally

• assist you to develop further skills required for independent practice and team-working within the accounting profession

• encourage you to adopt an analytical and creative approach to study and to develop the ability to argue rationally, communicate clearly, and form sound judgements

• enhance your knowledge, skills and abilities through the execution of a Masters level project

Your learning

The programme involves a series
of core modules and a project:

• Strategic Financial Accounting (20 credits)
• Strategic Management Accounting (20 credits)
• Professional Accounting and Governance (20 credits)
• Quantitative Analysis for Business (20 credits)
• Advanced Financial Accounting (20 credits)
• Theory and Accounting Research Methods (20 credits)

MSc

To attain the MSc, you must complete an MSc dissertation (40 credits). This involves undertaking significant research into an accounting problem or area that interests you.

Our Careers Adviser says

Graduates can apply for careers leading to professional accountant status and hold various positions in the private and public sectors, the service industry and manufacturing.

Professional recognition

The degree will seek exemptions (examinations F1, F2, F3 and F4) from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the global body for professional accountants.

Facilities

We have invested in new facilities at our Lanarkshire Campus. There are new teaching rooms and a postgraduate student learning space which ensures our environment supports your learning.

This course introduces concepts and mechanics of financial accounting. It covers preparation, interpretation, and analysis of corporate financial reports. Read more
This course introduces concepts and mechanics of financial accounting. It covers preparation, interpretation, and analysis of corporate financial reports. It will help you to identify how corporate value is created, and assess the value of a company or the contribution of managers. It also helps you learn how to take advantage of financial reporting to manage your organization effectively. By the time you complete this course, you must feel much more comfortable with dealing with financial reports. This course is not intended to train you as a professional accountant or help you to pass a professional examination. Instead, it tries to lay a foundation for being a leader
as a corporate executive, an entrepreneur, and a public officer. Given the quantity of core content, the course schedule will be very tight. It is important to focus on understanding the underlying implication of accounting rules and practice. Memorizing formulae and details might improve your test score but that won’t help you to go to a higher level of learning. The course is based on U.S. GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles). It will 2 discuss about merits, limitations of GAAP or an alternative to them. IFRS (international financial reporting system) will be also partially addressed in a few topics where there is rather clear contrast. Again, what’s important is not a particular accounting rule, but a reasoning and an implication behind it.

Teaching Methodology

The course will use problem solving and case discussion in workshop style as a main pedagogical method. It relies heavily on students’ pre-study of teaching materials. Students are expected to perform all reading assignments and exercises prior to attending a class. In each class, a short lecture, student presentations and discussion, and problem solving activities will follow. Also a quiz will be given frequently to motivate students’ preparation.

The Master in Financial and Managerial Accounting is the first study export of the IMB. It is offered at two universities in Vietnam and primarily designed for Vietnamese Bachelor graduates who would like to study for a post-graduate degree awarded by a renowned German university. The programme takes an international approach to combining theory and practice in providing broad business administration skills focused on international financial reporting standards as well as on managerial accounting.

Profile

In a technical sense, accounting provides a conceptual framework for preparing financial statements and accounts. The issues which arise in accounting are related to the difficulty of establishing a true and fair value of an enterprise and its assets, the moral basis of disclosure and discretion and the standards and laws required to satisfy the political needs of investors, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders in taking decisions broadly related to the economy. In this sense, accounting is a concept - and yet it is more than this. It is also a decisive part of a mechanism and a crucially important instrument in establishing and maintaining a market-based transaction system.

Accounting measures the heartbeat of the economy!

The Master in Financial and Managerial Accounting takes an international approach to combining theory and practice in providing broad business administration skills focused on international financial reporting standards as well as on managerial accounting.

It concentrates on the role of information in a market economy, and especially its importance in developing sound financial systems. To achieve the goal of skills and expertise on the level of the individual stakeholder, the FAMA Masters Programme curriculum and content not only provide core knowledge on external and internal information systems, but also addresses some key integrative multi-disciplinary aspects. In addition, the programme includes a broad selection of electives on various aspects of management, ethics, law and politics to meet the specific knowledge needs beyond pure accounting.”

In line with the developing cooperation between the Federal Republic of Germany and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the programme is jointly offered by the IMB Institute of Management Berlin and two Vietnamese universities.

The Master in Financial and Managerial Accounting is primarily designed for graduates from Vietnam who have completed a career-oriented first degree (BA or BSc) and would like to study for a post-graduate degree awarded by a renowned German university.

It prepares students for positions as accounting and controlling specialists or executive managers in consulting or auditing firms or in international companies.

Content

The Master programme is basically divided into two parts:

1st study term (11 months): Foundation Course

2nd study term (13 months): Specialisation and Master’s Thesis

The Foundation Course enables students to extend their knowledge acquired during their undergraduate studies to develop further expertise in Financial and Managerial Accounting and related subjects. In addition, a range of additional courses are provided by the electives and tutorials.

The specialisation builds on the Foundation Course to provide the specialised skills to meet the challenges in the chosen career sector. A case study / research project enables students to apply their new theoretical knowledge in practice. In addition to the completion of the specialisation modules, this study term is scheduled for completing the degree by submitting the Master’s Thesis and defending it in an oral exam. This Master programme is taught entirely in English.
