Course content

This programme is suited to anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of accounting and finance, and who wants to enter a career in financial markets, either as an analyst or professional accountant.

You will develop your ability to apply and evaluate the various models and methods that practitioners use to solve practical accounting and financial problems.

The MSc Accounting and Finance is designed to deliver financial expertise with an emphasis on understanding the accounting process. You will gain insight into the accounting process within the firm (management accounting) and into external reporting and its relevance to company valuation (financial accounting).

The programme gives you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of financial management and financial accounting, and will sharpen your quantitative skills in finance. You can specialise further by selecting options in subjects such as international taxation, derivatives, investment analysis, international portfolio management, corporate finance, banking, international financial management and many others.

We offer a programme of visiting speakers and a series of study weekends in which practicing fund managers and finance experts from the city share their expertise through a combination of seminars, discussions and practical project work.

In addition, non-assessed intensive information technology training, covering Datastream, Thomson Reuters and other financial databases and software systems, is incorporated into relevant modules.
