Course Summary

This course aims to develop and enhance the career prospects of those who work, or wish to work, in finance or accountancy. The programme assumes little or no business knowledge at undergraduate level and is therefore suitable for graduates from a range of disciplines who wish to break into this highly skilled profession. Students are expected to develop their understanding of both the key principles and the practical skills required to prepare and analyse accounts and related financial information. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their understanding of financial management decision making and the methods used to raise finance for companies. The programme offers a balanced curriculum of accounting and financial topics. The Lincoln International Business School has an experienced team of staff across the MSc Accounting and Finance programme who have worked in a variety of accounting and finance organisations. MSc Accounting and Finance students will be exempted from CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accounting) papers BA1, BA2, BA3 and BA4, AIA (Association of International Accountants) Paper 1 and Paper 6 as well as ACCA F1, F2 and F3 papers.
