MSc Accounting, Governance and Financial Management
Sheffield University Management School, Faculty of Social Sciences
Triple Crown accreditation means we meet the high standards of three of the world’s most prestigious accreditation bodies: AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. This puts us in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide.
I was attracted by the small class sizes and combination of the interactive teaching programme and research project within an organisation to provide real-world work experience.
