Course summary

Your existing accountancy qualifications show you’ve got what it takes to do the job, but the changing environment businesses operate in means you need to keep learning and improving. The best way to stay current is to take your skills to the next level. Our part-time, online MSc proves to employers you’re at the top of your game. You’ll add a recognised advanced qualification by studying just two units that include conducting a research dissertation where you will explore a specialist area of accounting and produce the latest research within that area. This is your opportunity to explore an area of your own interest, either influenced by your own professional goals, or those of your current organisation. Learn at your own pace There are no set lecture times. Each unit is delivered via flexible online sessions, which means that you can work through the units at your own pace. Using our interactive student portal, you’ll be able to make the most of a whole host of resources including webinars, digital library and forums. Throughout the course, we’ll also give you one-to-one support. To help you reach your potential, your personal tutor will share their expertise and experience. And, if you need to talk them, they’re only a Microsoft Teams call away. While you won’t be joining us on campus, you’ll still have a chance to connect with people on your course and support each other as you take your skills and career to the next level.
