MSc Accounting & Finance


Course Description

Most people probably think that research in accounting and finance is "all about numbers", but that really couldn't be further from the truth! Indeed, there is much more to accounting and finance research. This course allows students the opportunity to study the advanced aspects of accounting or finance with staff that have a sound knowledge of the technical aspects of their subjects.

Why study MSc Accounting and Finance at Dundee?

At Dundee we aim to help you develop a better understanding of accounting and finance practices, skills and techniques needed for a variety of exciting careers. A major part of modern finance study involves examining the way in which large corporations use their funds to generate income and wealth in the future in an increasingly globalised accounting and reporting environment. Throughout your studies, we want you to understand the power and limitations of accountancy and financial techniques and how they can help society to function.

The programme emphasises the role played by capital markets both in the UK and overseas in this wealth creation process and highlights their importance in the global economy.

Our staff are committed to providing a stimulating, supportive and friendly environment for our students. This commitment was recognised by the latest National Student Survey (2011) in which 94% of accountancy students said they thought staff were good at explaining things.

Students studying accounting and finance are taught by staff who have either practical experience working in this sector or who have gained insights into financial and accounting practices through research of analysts, company directors and market traders. These insights from practice help inform the teaching of accounting and finance at Dundee.
