In addition, students have the opportunity to attend workshops covering research methods and ethical issues and to share ideas and strategies. The Masters and Postgraduate Diploma are mapped to the ACCA’s Strategic Professional (Essential) papers as well as one of the ACCA Strategic Professional option papers.
