This programme offers the opportunity to pursue appropriately advanced studies in both accounting and finance, equipping the students for careers in financial institutions, management consulting, industry or government bodies. The modules included in the programme aim to develop capacities of critical assessment of literature and methods, and the ability to communicate, orally and in writing, on topics in accounting and finance. They provide a stimulating suite of learning activities that introduce students to contemporary theories and practice. The development of transferable skills will shape the teaching and learning on the programme. The successful completion of coursework, for instance, will require students to gather information from a range of sources, as well as select and assimilate the relevant knowledge and complete tasks within deadlines.
