The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).


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.

A Masters course is an academically rigorous programme during which you explore your subject in depth, reaching a high level of specialist knowledge. You draw on knowledge and skills from your undergraduate study or your professional life to produce work of a high academic standard, informed by current thinking and debate.
A Masters course lasts for twelve months (full-time), starting in October, and consists of taught modules during your autumn and spring terms, and normally a research-based dissertation or other project-based work submitted in September. Your balance of modules and research varies according to the subject but, typically, your research counts for 60 credits and there are 120 credits of modules, varying from 10 to 40 credits each. (If you are from the EU, then our Masters courses are regarded as second-cycle qualifications under the Bologna Declaration and consist of 90 ECTS credits).
Please note that module information on our course finder provides a guide to course content and may be subject to review on an annual basis.
