Fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide are accredited by the AACSB, so accounting graduates from this course will be getting their career off to an exceptional start.
This Integrated Master’s course, which is accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the Charted Institute of Management Accountants and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, provides both the theoretical frameworks and practical skills required of accounting and finance professionals.
One of the key features of the course is its flexibility. Designed around a number of core units in accounting and finance, ensuring that you develop your theoretical knowledge, and your ability to analyse financial data and understand financial instruments. You’ll be able to tailor your learning with a number of option units to suit your ambitions in areas like Investment Management, International Tax, Risk Modelling, Business Tax and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The final year requires you to study at a Master's level and acquire proficiency in areas like Financial Econometrics, FinTech and Derivatives; all specialisms required to work in the capital and financial markets.
A diverse array of guest speakers help to add context to what your highly-qualified and experienced lecturers teach you in the classroom, and you’ll have the option to study abroad at one of our international partner institutions during the second semester of the second year. Currently, we have partners in Australia, Canada and Europe.
You may choose to complete an optional 30-week work placement which can be carried out anywhere in the world. The placement year offers a chance to gain experience and make contacts for the future.
