It is appropriate for applicants interested in careers across a wide range of sectors and organisations in the fields of business, consulting and finance, and provides thorough preparation for academic research in accounting or finance.
The Accounting and Finance programme from London School of Economics and Political Science assumes an academic background in financial reporting, management accounting, finance, economics and quantitative methods prior to entry. As a condition of admission, you may be required to take one or more courses in these areas to strengthen your background.
Through your course selection, you can emphasise either accounting or finance, or can choose an equally balanced programme across the two areas. You will also be able to specialise in a designated pathway in finance, international accounting and finance, or accounting and financial management.
The programme is housed within the Department of Accounting, which is widely recognised throughout the world for its excellence in accounting and financial management research and education, as well as for its leading role in public policy issues. The interface between accounting and managers, organisations, institutions, public policy and regulatory bodies is a particular teaching and research strength of the Department.
Students who successfully complete the MSc Accounting and Finance programme pursue careers across a wide range of sectors, in financial institutions, accounting firms, management consulting, industry, government and academia.
