You will read and assess the current literature in the main fields of economics, accounting and finance and form independent, informed judgements about it. You will then plan and embark on a programme of independent research (under appropriate supervision) undertaking a thorough literature review in a prescribed topic area and/or analysing economic, accounting or financial data and relating the results to theory.
