University of East London

Course Introduction

The course is a specialist academic programme developed around the professional level papers of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the ACA qualification from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). It provides the opportunity to obtain a master's degree which can lead to postgraduate employment whilst simultaneously preparing you for some examination papers at professional levels of relevant accountancy bodies. If you choose to take advantage of this 'fast track' career development route towards a professional accounting qualification, you will be responsible for arranging and taking the relevant examination papers externally, as the accountancy bodies do not currently offer accredited exemptions from papers at professional level.

Course Modules

Governance and accountability (core); corporate reporting (core); business strategy (core); strategic financial management (option); advanced taxation (option); strategic performance management (option); advanced auditing and assurance (option); dissertation (core).
