About

This course aims to provide the theoretical framework and skills that accountants and financial managers need in order to cope with an increasingly complex and global accounting environment. It also provides a valuable foundation for those contemplating careers in areas such as investment banking or financial analysis, which are likely to involve extensive use of accounting information.

Overview

For many students, the desire to boost their career prospects and move more quickly into senior roles is a key reason for acquiring a Masters degree. That's why we integrate careers support into our MSc programmes, and offer a range of facilities to help you in your career development and job search process.

Like all of the School’s Masters students, you will have access to guidance and support from the LUMS careers team. But to give you extra industry-specific job-hunting skills, we have partnered up with a financial markets specialist who has worked for several leading investment banks and also financial technology institutions. As a financial careers coach still working in the financial markets, his role is to make you aware of many different opportunities that exist within the sector, giving you a clear picture of the particular skills required – and, crucially, an insider view on what employers will be looking for.
