    Course Outline

    This course is typically delivered over three terms in a single year.

    Terms 1 and 2:

    120 credits will be awarded for taught modules in the first two terms. These will be a mix of ‘core’ modules and electives which should be selected with an eye toward your intended specialty and the subject of your dissertation.

    Term 3:

    Another 60 credits each will be awarded for your dissertation, which will be delivered in your third term. You will determine the subject of this dissertation with the assistance of the teaching staff, but recent subjects have involved various aspects of:

    • Audit Markets
    • Audit Practice
    • Corporate Governance
    • Field Research on Management Accounting
    • Management Control Systems
    • Performance Reporting

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Manchester’s Accounting and Finance MSc program is heavily research-oriented. However, it will feature 120 credits worth of lecture and seminar classes which will typically be assessed using a coursework essay, an unseen written examination, or a combination of both. Your final term will consist solely of a dissertation, which will be worth a full 1/3 of the program’s credits.

    Career Possiblities

    The University of Manchester’s MSc program in Accounting and Finance will prepare you well for taking a position as a specialist practitioner in the financial services sector or in accounting. The university’s stellar academic reputation and wide network of contacts and alumni should serve to ease your transition into the workforce dramatically.

    Alternatively, this program is recognised as postgraduate preparation for a PhD by the Economic and Social Research Council. It therefore also serves as a perfect step towards a PhD in Accounting and Finance or a similar high-level degree.
