This course is designed to give you an understanding of how firms report their financial data. It is a conversion course, and is ideal for graduates who would like to change subjects or career direction.

We have a global focus when it comes to accounting and finance, allowing you to develop a truly international perspective while studying with our expert teaching team. Our finance courses are industry focused, with our graduates going to work at leading international companies.

This Master’s will develop your ability to effectively analyse data and draw conclusions from it. A contemporary issue of increasing concern to modern international corporations is their ability to accurately reflect environmental issues in their financial reports.

By providing instruction in this emerging and important area of financial reporting, you’ll get a unique insight not possessed by graduates from other courses, but much sought after by potential employers.

Ultimately you’ll gain the transferable skills needed for a future career in accounting and finance. These include team working, objective analysis, and communication.

You’ll also have the option of undertaking work experience as part of the research project unit, subject to you finding suitable experience.
