What will I learn?

About the course

Our MSc programme is designed to develop an understanding of accounting and finance in global organisations and to provide you with important training for careers in the accounting and financial sectors.

A distinctive feature of the programme is that it is designed for graduates from any discipline with a strong interest in the foundations of accounting and finance who wish to acquire analytical skills, both numerical and discursive, to pursue a career in the financial sector. You do not need to have studied in this discipline, but we recommend that students have a basic knowledge and understanding of accounting and/or business studies to make the most of this programme.

The programme also caters for those who seek a general career in business or public service but who want to know more about how the accounting and finance sector operates and how it influences stakeholders, including managers, providers of finance and government.

What you'll study

You will develop key professional and research skills, as well as an understanding of ethical business practice. You will also undertake a final research project, which can be either a dissertation or a business-based project.

Future prospects

The programme provides training for careers in the accounting and financial sectors.

Careers support is available from the Student and Graduate Centre for Professional Success which is the central point of contact for connecting students and business.

Bringing together employability activities from across Hull University Business School, it offers support such as mentoring, CV writing workshops, and help working with business through a year in industry or short-term internships and projects.
