The MSc Professional Accounting programme offered by the Coventry University demands a great deal from its students, so it’s ideal if you want to cover a lot of ground in a short time. You’ll learn to operate effectively within the global marketplace, enabling you to pursue a career in accounting or to further your knowledge of accounting standards. You may have just graduated in accounting or a related subject, or perhaps you’re already an accountant but want to develop into broader management roles.
This master’s course is linked to SAP. You’ll also learn using Bloomberg terminals and S&P Capital IQ – which are routinely used in major organisations around the word. And where better to study accounting than in the heart of London’s financial district?
Jobs in accounting and finance are competitive, so this degree is designed to provide the edge you need to secure a great career in accounting or strategic management.
If you haven’t yet qualified as an accountant, this course will offer significant exemptions from the qualifying exams with the leading professional bodies. From there, you could take up a role with an accountancy firm (including the big global consultancies) or you could work in-house for a business or become self-employed. Not all students may want to qualify as an accountant, but will have obtained an excellent grounding for a career in finance, management or leadership. You might work for an investment company or in raising corporate finance, for example.
If you’ve already qualified as an accountant, your higher-level qualification could accelerate your career – whether in accounting or in strategic leadership roles. You’ll have broadened your understanding of a wide range of aspects of accounting and deepened your knowledge of international accounting standards.
