This popular Masters degree will kick-start your professional career, delivering advanced modules in key areas of accounting and finance. It is ideal if you have an academic background in either accounting or finance, or both.

Throughout the course you have the opportunity to apply your learning to practical examples and simulations, giving you the chance to test your knowledge in genuine business scenarios. You will work with graduates from a range of countries and backgrounds for a challenging, rewarding and rounded learning experience.
Career opportunities for graduates of this Masters are vast. You will be able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge of core accounting and finance principles, and the numerical and analytical skills to succeed in this rapidly changing complex environment.
Previous graduates have gone on to work as management accountants, management consultants, audit managers, finance managers, equity managers and credit risk officers.
