About Accounting and Finance at University of Lincoln

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:

  • Management accounting - Decision-Making
  • Corporate Governance
  • Entrepreneurship and social enterprise
  • Aviation and airport management
  • Culture and heritage
  • Comparative human resource management
  • Analysing fiction
  • Innovation management
  • Gender, power, and business
  • Business ethics and corporate social responsibility
