Want to gain comprehensive business skills to give your career a boost? Our MSc in Business with Accounting & Finance offers you the opportunity to study business and get specific insight into the world of finance. A grounding in key business areas is followed by modules in accounting and finance to give you knowledge in this specialist field. This course is open to anyone with a good first degree who wants an opportunity to study business with an introduction to accounting and finance.

Course structure

You will begin Term 1 with three modules, that cover key business areas (Foundations of Financial & Management Accounting, Quantitative Methods for Business, and Strategy Analysis and Practice). Additionally the Strategic Management Accounting module is the first of your Accounting and Finance specialist modules.

In Term 2 you will study Fundamentals of Economic Behaviour, another key business area, looking at microeconomics but with our unique behavioural science perspective. You will also do two more of your specialist modules (Corporate Finance, and Business Analysis & Valuation). Finally you choose one optional module, allowing you to explore another field.

In Term 3 you will study your fourth specialist module, Corporate Governance, and an optional module. You also follow the course content relating to either the Dissertation or Business in Practice route.

Optional modules

We offer a range of optional modules which reflect the research strength of WBS across the business and management disciplines. You undertake one optional module in Term 2 and in Term 3 (if you choose the Dissertation route, your Term 2 optional module must be Research Methodology). Please note that module availability may vary and that your first choice may not be guaranteed. 

Assessment

Assessment is a mix of exams, project work, and tests. Your dissertation or Business in Practice module brings all your learning together.

Choice of Dissertation or Business in Practice route:

Dissertation route

If you are considering further academic study (PhD) and you would like the opportunity to research a topic relating to accounting and finance, the 6,000 word dissertation enables you to test and apply the techniques and theories you have gained. You will be supervised and supported throughout, and the Term 2 compulsory module Research Methodology helps you prepare.

In total you will study eight compulsory modules and one optional module, and complete a dissertation and a Research Methodology module.
