Accountancy is often referred to as the universal language of business: along with finance, this field is uniquely positioned to touch many aspects of business. Companies and organizations are increasingly relying on qualified accountants to drive their profit margins and help them understand the nuanced dynamics of financial success, while governments and policy makers are looking to accountants to help combat issues like climate change through solutions such as ‘cap and trade’ and carbon taxes. Whether you want to hone your fluency in the language of accounting or you’re looking to undertake a career change, a Masters in Accounting could be for you.
