About Accounting and Finance, MSc - at University of Hull

Due to exceptional demand, we are sorry but this course is now closed for applications from international students to study in 2022. Applications for 2023/4 will open in September 2022.

If you are a home (UK) student and want to apply for this postgraduate programme please contact admissions on 01482 466850 or pghome@hull.ac.uk.

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.

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.

Core modules

All modules are subject to availability and this list may change at any time.

Issues in Accounting and Accountability

Foundations of Finance

This module offers an understanding of key financial theories and practices: their strengths and weaknesses, and their usefulness in financial decision making. Key topics include financial performance analysis; risk and return; capital budgeting and management; and the time value of money.

Financial Markets

This module aims to give you an understanding of the principles of modern financial markets and instruments. You'll learn to apply these concepts by following and interpreting current affairs in the financial markets.

Corporate Financial Management

This module introduces you to the theory and practice of corporate finance, focusing on the effects of investment and financing decisions on firm value. You'll also develop an understanding of corporate financial management policies.

Accounting, Organisations and Control

Develop your understanding of organisational accounting and control processes and their impacts on businesses, governments and society. You'll study performance evaluations as well as management control and accounting systems and techniques, including their changes, issues and economic contexts.

Public Sector Finance, Taxation and Accounting

The programme is designed for graduates from any discipline with a strong interest in the foundations of accounting and finance. However, we do recommend that you have a basic knowledge and understanding of this area of business studies.

You will have a minimum of a 2:2 Honours degree or international equivalent, one academic reference and a good command of English.

In order to ensure our students have a rich learning and student experience, most of our programmes have a mix of domestic and international students. We reserve the right to close applications early to either group, if application volumes suggest that this blend cannot be achieved. In addition, existing undergraduate students at the University of Hull have a guaranteed 'Fast Track' route to any postgraduate programme, subject to meeting the entry criteria.
