The course is designed to appeal to graduates of accounting, finance or business management courses.
The first four modules of the course form the base of your studies and provide a solid grounding in the key aspects of accounting and finance. Thereafter, you will study traditional and contemporary theoretical aspects of accounting and finance.
The course includes a number of distinctive modules e.g. the Accounting Theory module addresses the underlying principles that lead to accounting conventions; the International Finance module examines the financial management of multinational corporations in a global environment. It takes you to the frontier of modern and most effective approaches of managing financial and political risks and the techniques used to hedge foreign currency exposures by multinational corporations, as well as taking advantage of the international capital markets to raise finance. The option module gives you the opportunity to explore an accounting and finance area that particularly interests you, while the research based dissertation allows you to further your knowledge in an area of interest which supports your career ambitions, or explore an area in which you would like to extend your research further at PhD level.
