This programme is suited to anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of accounting and finance with a view to enter a career in either field.

The MSc Accounting and Finance offers you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of financial management, financial accounting, and management accounting and will sharpen your quantitative skills in finance. You will gain insight into the accounting process within a firm (management accounting) and into external reporting and its relevance to company valuation (financial accounting).

One of the main attractions of the degree is the broad spectrum of options available – you can specialise further by selecting subjects such as international taxation, derivatives pricing, domestic and international portfolio management, corporate finance and governance, banking and financial services, international financial management, topics in financial economics, and many others.

We also offer a series of visiting speakers seminars and workshops in which practicing fund managers and finance experts from leading banks 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.
