MSc Accounting and Finance

Nottingham University Business School

This new specialist course gives you the latest research and thinking associated with accounting and finance.

You will have studied a business related subject as an undergraduate but you have a particular interest in accounting and finance and want to build on your existing knowledge.

The course is for you if you aspire to work as a financial specialist in any sector. It also provides the perfect foundation for further postgraduate study.

It builds on the theory and application of accounting and finance principles. You will enrich and broaden your understanding of important areas of financial management and engage in current debate on these topics.

The course consists of six compulsory modules spread across two semesters and a summer dissertation. In semester one, there are four compulsory modules: Corporate Financial Strategy, Current Issues in Accounting, Introduction to Research Methods, and Further Quantitative Research Methods. These provide a basis for further specialisation in semester two.

In semester two, you will take two compulsory modules: Financial Security Valuation and Financial Statement Analysis. Two more optional modules allow you to tailor your degree to suit your individual interests and career aspirations.
