By choosing Bradford you’ll also benefit from studying at a triple accredited (Equis, AMBA and AACSB) business school that’s rated by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s Top 60 Schools.

The MSc in Finance, Accounting and Management focuses on the key elements of business, with a strong emphasis on creating and measuring value through the principles and practice of accounting and finance. The course aims to produce fully rounded practitioners with an appreciation of all business disciplines.

Initially, students take a number of compulsory modules to provide the foundations for an understanding of management and business disciplines. In the second semester, learning focuses more specifically on finance and accounting issues from both a strategic and international perspective, and students will have the opportunity to choose one elective subject from an extensive range. The final part of the programme is the dissertation, with students investigating a specific finance-related topic.
