Accounting and Financial Management

If you wish to pursue a career in accounting, or require knowledge of accounting in your role as a budget holder, this interdisciplinary MSc provides a thorough understanding of the key areas of accounting and financial management for non-accounting graduates. We seek students from business/management, accounting and finance, or those with a quantitative background. Because our students come from such a variety of backgrounds and range in age and experience, you will find our class discussions a stimulating arena in which to explore new ideas and topics. Strong emphasis is placed on analysis and interpretation using case study and live company analysis. **HIGHLIGHTS** - The Department of Management is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in teaching, research and consultancy in the broad field of management. - Our academic staff are active researchers as well as enthusiastic teachers, and regularly publish cutting-edge articles in the world's leading journals. We have particular research strengths in international business and strategy, the management of innovation and entrepreneurship, human resource management, corporate governance, sport management and marketing, as well as financial management and accounting. - We engage in significant collaborative research and have excellent contacts with many public and private sector organisations, professional bodies and researchers at other academic institutions. - You will have access to Moodle, our online learning resource where all information and materials relating to your programme of study and modules are available, as well as the Birkbeck Library and e-Library. - This programme is part of the CFA university recognition programme and has a limited number of CFA scholarships available.
