    The MSc in Business and Accounting provides an education in business organisation and strategy, with particular focus on accounting and finance. Graduates will understand the principles at the heart of business decisions.

    The subjects of Management Accounting and Financial Accounting are set in the context of business decisions which aim to add value to the enterprise. You will be given plenty of real-life examples of how appropriate application of accounting helps managers to implement, monitor and report the activities which create growth and success.
