Accounting and Finance

This programme is suitable for applicants looking for a career in financial markets; either as an analyst, as a professional accountant, or as a preparation for further research at doctoral level. Students develop their ability to apply and evaluate the various models and methods that practitioners use to solve practical accounting and financial problems. The course is designed to deliver financial expertise with an emphasis on understanding the accounting process. Students gain insight into the accounting process both within the firm (management accounting) and for external reporting and its relevance to company valuation (financial accounting). The programme gives students a solid grounding in the fundamentals of financial management and financial accounting, and it will sharpen their quantitative skills in finance. Students can specialise further by selecting options in subjects such as derivatives, investment analysis, international portfolio management, corporate finance, banking, international financial management and many others.
