MSc International Accounting


Course Description

This course will provide you with an international perspective on the theory and practice of accounting. There will be a particular focus on the move towards global harmonisation of accounting standards and the impact of leading standard-setting authorities. This degree is suitable if you have studied accounting before and wish to further their understanding of contemporary issues in an international setting.

Why study MSc International Accounting at Dundee?

The MSc in International Accounting course will equip you with a high standard of knowledge in the principles, theoretical framework and practice of international accounting. You will also be exposed to contemporary research methodology and modern qualitative and quantitative research techniques employed to explore international corporate reporting practices. You will gain a detailed insight into the issues facing preparers and users of accounting information in an increasingly globalised reporting environment.

What's so good about MSc International Accounting at Dundee?

International Accounting is a rapidly expanding field and its importance has grown in conjunction with the trend towards globalisation. Employers are increasingly demanding that their recruits not only acquire the technical skills necessary to complete accounting tasks but also demand an appreciation of the context of accounting information taking into account wider social, political, economic, natural and cultural environments.

The MSc in International Accounting focuses on the connections between theory and practice and provides a strong basis for understanding issues in international accounting within this broader context. It also meets a need for postgraduate training as preparation for further research study.

How you will be taught

Modules start at the beginning of the academic session in September and are taught by lectures and tutorials.

What you will study

This course comprises four core modules:

Research Methods
Quantitative Methods
International Accounting & Financial Reporting
Contemporary Accounting Issues

plus one modules from a variety of modules offered within the School of Business which typically include:

Corporate Finance
Corporate Governance
Emerging Financial Markets and Investment
Strategic Management Accounting

Semester 1 modules are examined in December while modules taught in semester 2 are examined by the end of April/early May. At this point, students will be directed, by their supervisor, to begin the dissertation phase of the degree (although they will be encouraged to begin thinking about their research topics in Semester 2).

The dissertation should take students around four months to complete with final drafts being submitted in late August/September.

How you will be assessed

You will be assessed by a combination coursework, examinations and dissertation.
