Our new MSc is the first programme of its kind in UK and Irish Universities to offer practical hands-on modules in SAP and audit analytics tools for accountants.

Our professional development programme which runs throughout the programme is designed to provide support for career development and offers a suite of career events, one-to-one career support and  guest lectures from practice.
