Accounting, Finance & Economics

As more businesses trade internationally, there is a growing demand for people with financial and technical skills to enable them to succeed.

We offer a variety of accounting, finance and economics Master’s courses allowing you to focus your degree in a particular area of finance. We offer a specialist Master’s degree in Finance for students with a background in finance and a number of conversion courses for those with limited or no experience.

Our team of dynamic educators and researchers is drawn from countries around the world and our work is published in highly regarded academic publications. Our lecturers on these courses are leading experts dedicated to research with economic and societal impacts.
