About this course

Globalisation, the growth of multinational enterprises, the convergence of international accounting practices and the expansion of the European Union all contribute to the importance of an international focus in accounting and finance education. The increasing influence of International Financial Reporting Standards and the shortage of international accounting expertise have led to significant demand for relevant education. The speed and significance of recent reforms have led to a demand for Masters level education which reflects these developments and facilitates transition.

The MSc in International Accounting and Finance is designed to equip you with a high standard of knowledge in the principles, theoretical concepts and practice of accounting and finance. In today’s fast paced business world, competition is fiercer than ever, and well qualified graduates in accounting and finance are recognised as having the knowledge and skills necessary to deal innovatively with the many challenges occurring in industry, financial institutions and public services.
