As an Accountant you have a wide range of industries and locations to choose from in virtually any country in the world. You can work for known accountancy firms or you can become a consultant, offering freelance services to a range of industries. At Aberdeen teaching expertise is linked to the world of finance to ensure your experience is both practical and rigorous. You have access to a University Trading room, used by professional services companies and you can earn data stream certificates to demonstrate your ability to handle the professional tools. The Aberdeen postgraduate degree also exempts you from the first four papers of the ACCA syllabus.
The programme is suitable for a graduate from any discipline to convert to Accountancy and Finance. You develop a strong foundation in the principles and practise of accounting and finance, and understanding of analytical tools required to make appropriate financial decisions. Our MSc students will develop the theoretical and practical skills and qualitative and quantitative tools necessary for the analysis of issues in different areas of accountancy and finance.
