Overview

Students will have completed the three year undergraduate BA (Hons) Accounting and Management programme before progressing onto this final year to achieve an MAcc (Hons) Accounting and Management.

This programme has been designed to encourage students to develop their technical knowledge and professional skills relevant to the discipline of accounting. This course develops the key financial and management accounting skills as well as the broader business and management expertise employers are looking for. The programme covers the applied aspects of accounting, together with the team-working, problem-solving, communication skills and commercial awareness which companies need in a complex global business world.

Students may pursue this four-year integrated Masters programme – these students study for an extra year and graduate with an MAcc (Hons), as opposed to a BA (Hons).

Students opting for this four-year MAcc (Hons) in Accounting and Management develop their capacity for critical thinking, independent learning and research. The programme covers the analysis, synthesis and evaluation of contemporary accounting and finance issues. The aim is to contribute to the development of higher level professional skills and competencies.
