About

The Financial Economics and Accounting course is offered by the University of Essex. Gain both accountancy skills and a deeper understanding of economics in the context of modern finance. 

Overview

With the Financial Economics and Accounting course offered by the University of Essex you gain in-depth knowledge of the use of accounting information in organisational control and decision making, plus the use of financial statements and the problems of measurement and disclosure, and explore topics including:

  • Optimisation theory
  • How economic arguments work
  • The role of equilibrium
  • Notions of risk and return in equity markets
  • Asset pricing and the management of equity portfolios

Your future

After completing your masters, you may wish to extend your knowledge with a research degree – many Essex graduates decide to stay here for further study.

Alternatively, our course also prepares you for employment; recent surveys have shown that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at professional or managerial level.

Graduates will be well placed for success in decision making in the interface between economics and accounting. Key skills include analytical reasoning, mathematical techniques, research and the evaluation of business accounts. One recent graduate of MSc Accounting and Financial Economics is now a finance officer for Save the Children China programme.
