Course Description

Overview

This programme offers a contemporary and specialised approach to accountancy and finance, focussing on the exploration of key practical, theoretical and empirical issues. It is ideal if you wish to pursue a career in the financial services industry, professional accountancy, banking and finance or management. It also provides a thorough preparation for academic research.
The worlds of accountancy and finance are always changing due to the changing legal framework the financial sector operates in. If you want to work in this area, this course will provide the theoretical framework and latest information.

The programme brings together two highly-respected Schools of Queen Mary University of London. The School of Business and Management is rapidly building a strong reputation for a distinctive approach, in particular the focus on the inter-disciplinary nature of business and management.

The School of Economics and Finance is one of the top Economics schools in the country, with particular expertise in economic theory, econometrics and finance, and applied economics. We have published research in virtually all the top economics journals. In the REF 2014, the School of Economics and Finance was ranked among the top ten in the country for research power.
