Accounting, Governance and Financial Management
Faculty of Social Sciences
The programme explores the financial management of a range of organisations along with core competencies of financial and management accounting. The first semester sets the scene with foundation modules, before guiding you to more advanced material. On graduation, you will be fully equipped to take an advanced accounting or financial management role. The special emphasis on governance makes this masters ideal if you want to be a financial manager in an organisation or if you want to go into financial services as an auditor, for example.
Like all our masters, this programme combines rigorous academic work with practical experience. Through seminars, group work, real-life case studies and a dissertation, you’ll develop the skills and the judgement to practise financial management in any sector. You can apply to base your dissertation on project work with an external organisation.
