Professional Accounting

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

A professional accounting program can prepare students with the accounting skills that can be used in a variety of industries. Examples of typical classes are financial and managerial accounting, economic theory, finance, taxation, auditing and financial statement analysis.

Distance education or distance learning is a way of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present on campus.
