Royal Holloway, University of London
This is an innovative course based on the research expertise of the Accounting, Finance and Economics Research Group. It was created in response to the increasing recognition of the need to set the theory and practice of accounting in the context of its social, political, natural and cultural environments. This internationally focused course would suit individuals who wish to enhance their understanding of accounting whether they are from academic or business background in management or accounting equally as those from other disciplines. International Accounting is a rapidly developing field, which has grown in conjunction with globalisation and an increasing awareness of the need to set the theory and practice of accounting in the context of its social, political, economic, natural and cultural environments. The programme draws upon the extensive research and teaching expertise of our management and economics academics. You will gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues in the theory and practice of international financial accounting and in the context of society. You will also have a critical awareness of issues in management accounting together with an understanding of related social, organisational and international influences. The course covers performance management and investment appraisal in an international context, perspectives on culture, control and accountability, the transition to a knowledge and service-based business environment and empirical studies of differences in management accounting across countries. On graduating you will have transferable skills including the ability to critically evaluate accounting documents and relevant academic literature, employ different research methodologies, evaluate and employ a variety of accounting-based techniques as well as write reports, give presentations and work as a team. - Strong career prospects in the finance and commercial areas; increasing globalisation means that organisations value graduates with knowledge and understanding of contemporary international accounting who have also reflected on its broader setting and implications. - Flexibility to tailor your studies to suit your specific areas of interest, such as: comparative international accounting, creative accounting and impression management and sustainability and accounting. - Outstanding research; Royal Holloway sits in the top 25 per cent of UK universities for research which is rated as 'world-leading' and 'internationally excellent' - Inspiring international community; 60% of our Management students come from overseas and the 8,500 students at Royal Holloway, University of London are from 130 countries.
