About this program

MSc Accounting & Finance

Strong management of financial performance and accounts are key to the success of any organisation. At Manchester Met, we’ll help you find new ways to deal with the issues facing businesses.

To take us up on this challenge, you’ll need to have studied accounting and finance at undergraduate level or achieved all of the ACCA Fundamental Level Papers.

Home to global businesses

Manchester is one of the largest financial centre outside London, so you’ll have businesses like Deloitte and KPMG on your doorstep and plenty of opportunities to network with employers.

We also provide training programs for HMRC, BNY Mellon and PwC staff, so our teaching expertise is second to none. We teach the professionals in areas of tax, auditing and financial performance management.

Building your expertise

We’ll cover a whole host of areas including International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), corporate reporting, governance and risk management. You’ll also apply tools and models of finance theory to understand current challenges.

Your dissertation will put your expertise to the test. It might involve working with an employer to investigate a business issue or answering a challenging research question.

Past students have explored nuclear companies, exchange rate fluctuations, and alignment between performance measurement and strategy.

Admission requirements

You will need a UK honours degree – at least a 2:2 – or the international equivalent, in an accounting and finance related subject, or a degree with substantial accounting content.

We will also consider applicants with appropriate professional passes in a CCAB or equivalent approved professional accounting body and with substantial relevant work experience.

Overseas applicants will require IELTS with an overall score of 6.5 with no less than 5.5 in any category, or an equivalent accepted English qualification.
