Course Introduction

The MSc Accounting and Management is a new taught postgraduate programme offered by the School of Business and Management. This programme offers specialised, practical and theoretical education in the area of accounting and the management of resources. It is relevant to both corporate and public sectors and this programme will develop both your theoretical and practical knowledge of accounting and its role in recording and influencing the management of resources. This course will appeal to students who are interested in how accounting systems inform the management of corporate and non-corporate sector resources. Accounting information systems are placed at the centre of this course and students will be challenged to structure their critical thinking and analysis within a unique business models organising framework in a world that has become increasingly financialised.

This course is founded upon a range of innovative, compulsory modules in which you will examine resource management in the context of today's challenging financial environment. The programme will: provide you with a pathway into corporate and non-corporate spheres of executive employment with the appropriate skills in accounting systems and the way in which these influence the management and deployment of resources; equip you with both a critical theoretical and practical knowledge of accounting in a variety of organisational settings; give you a range of transferable skills that are attractive to employers.

Queen Mary's programme is distinctive from other Masters in Accounting and Management in that it: will appeal to students who are interested in how accounting systems inform the management of corporate and non-corporate resources; locates accounting and management of resources within a unique business models framework to explore how complex relations between resource management, stakeholders, financial outcomes and performance play out; will equip students with both a critical theoretical and practical knowledge of accounting in a variety of organisational settings; reflects challenges facing corporate and non-corporate spheres in a financialised world.
