The MSc Accounting and Finance degree aims to develop and enhance the career prospects of those who work, or wish to work, in finance or accountancy. The programme assumes little or no business knowledge at undergraduate level and is therefore suitable for graduates from a range of disciplines who wish to break into this highly skilled profession. Students are expected to develop their understanding of both the key principles and the practical skills required to prepare and analyse accounts and related financial information. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their understanding of financial management decision making and the methods used to raise finance for companies. The programme offers a balanced curriculum of accounting and financial topics.

The programme aims to develop written and verbal skills to give students the opportunity to become confident communicators, prepared to face the challenges of fast-paced modern public relations work. Students can work with multi-media technologies including video, audio and online material, and study how social media can be a volatile but powerful platform to reach large audiences.
Lincoln’s Accountancy and Finance degree aims to equip students with a vocationally relevant and academically rigorous education in a programme which also offers the opportunity for exemptions from a number of the professional accountancy bodies. The programme provides the chance to develop practical and theoretical skills in both the nature and mechanics of financial information. This course provides students with the opportunity to develop the critical-thinking skills, knowledge and problem-solving abilities that are needed by senior leaders and decision-makers in business. The ability to reflect critically on their role, both as private individuals and as members of society is also considered.
