Our MSc Accounting and Management will broaden and deepen your thinking about accounting and management. You will develop a broader understanding of the changing roles and perception of management and accounting within the context of shifting societal values, competing cultural influences and ideological demands, dwindling natural resources, globalised competition and the increasingly widespread impact of information technology.
This course will offer you a broad educational programme that prepares you to face the challenges of managing and working in a variety of organisations, both within Europe and internationally.
Our Essex Business School has an international reputation for cutting-edge research in accounting, finance, management and entrepreneurship. This was confirmed when we were ranked second in the UK for accounting and finance research, with 95 percent of our research graded as of international quality. Our work is informed by a broad range of social science theories and concepts, much of it addressing the important issues currently being faced by commercial businesses, public sector bodies and not-for-profit organisations.
We are recognised for being at the forefront of research in: business ethics and corporate social responsibility; organisation studies; leadership and strategy; finance and banking; risk management; and international management. Many of our academic staff have world class research reputations and have written about, or worked, in, a wide range of organisations and this experience is incorporated into your learning experience within our School.
