Course Summary

The MSc in Strategic Accounting combines preparation for ACCA Membership with the development of essential skills for accounting in a global context with consideration to the findings of the research paper ‘Professional Accountants – the future: Drivers of Change and Future Skills’ (ACCA 2016).

Not only will you study modules that are 100% aligned to the ACCA syllabus there will be an opportunity for you to develop highly valued skills in the areas of Cyber Security and Data Analytics. This programme therefore helps prepare you both to become a professional accountant and to prepare you for the future challenges and opportunities that the profession will face.

The ACCA predict that the landscape in which accountants work will be impacted by ‘drivers’ – of regulation and governance, digital technology, expectation and globalisation – and that accountants who are able to integrate their technical and leadership competences with these drivers will be highly valued by organisations worldwide.

Students will be required to pay separately for the ACCA student membership, exemptions and external examination fees, please visit their website for more details. By completing this programme, you will achieve an MSc in Strategic Accounting and complete all of the Strategic Professional ACCA exams. However, please note you will need to sit the ACCA exams outside of the MSc Strategic Accounting to obtain the ACCA accreditation.

The programme provides a sound foundation for students wishing to commence or continue a career in the accounting profession whether in professional practice, industry, the public sector, the charity sector, financial services or professional services.
