MSc Accounting and Finance is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and understanding of core accounting and finance principles.

The programme provides students with the opportunity to gain a clear understanding of the joint role of accounting and finance in ensuring successful operations in a range of business settings. Students can develop their understanding of the key principles and practical skills required to prepare and analyse accounts and related financial information, and learn about financial management decision making and the methods used to raise finance for companies.

This programme is available for both a September and February start.

The course is offered with two separate pathways.

Please note: the Professional Practice pathway is only available for a September start.
