A fast-paced and highly practical CIMA and ACCA-accredited master’s degree programme. Ideal for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of accounting in the global context.
This master’s programme demands a great deal from its students, so it may be ideal if you want to cover a lot of ground in a short time. You’ll learn to operate effectively within the global marketplace, enabling you, upon successful completion, to pursue a career in accounting or to further your knowledge in the field of accounting and finance. You may have just graduated in accounting or a related subject, or perhaps you’re already an accountant but want to develop your knowledge base into broader management roles.
What’s more, both MSc Professional Accounting and MSc Professional Accounting with Extended Professional Practice have been awarded nine ACCA exemption accreditations, and upon completion of the programme students can enter CIMA via their Masters gateway which entitles them to 11 exemptions. This master’s course is also linked to SAP HANA. You’ll also learn using Bloomberg terminals and S&P Capital IQ – which are routinely used in major organisations around the word. Where better to study accounting than in the heart of London’s financial district?
