The MSc Accounting and Finance degree aims to develop and enhance the career prospects of those who work, or wish to work, in finance or accountancy. The programme assumes little or no business knowledge at undergraduate level and is therefore suitable for graduates from a range of disciplines who wish to break into this highly skilled profession.
Students are expected to develop their understanding of both the key principles and the practical skills required to prepare and analyse accounts and related financial information. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their understanding of financial management decision making and the methods used to raise finance for companies.
The programme offers a balanced curriculum of accounting and financial topics. The taught element of the programme consists of seven compulsory modules and one optional module. The following is an illustrative list of options:
A minimum 2:2 honours degree and grade C or above GCSE Mathematics
Please note that as this is a conversion Masters programme we do not accept those with BSc or BA Accounting onto this programme. Applicants from all other backgrounds will be considered.
International Students will require English Language at IELTS 6.0 with no less than 5.5 in each element, or equivalent. http://www.lincoln.ac.uk/englishrequirements
