Strategic financial project
This module is offered on the MSc in Professional Accountancy. The module is designed to build on professional accountancy papers to offer a route to a masters’-level qualification, incorporating accredited prior learning of professional papers benchmarked at level 7 masters’ equivalent. This module is a capstone project involving the development of business research skills and their application to simulated real world accounting/finance related problems.
Core to the project will be the requirement for students to acquire an underpinning in research methodology, applying research skills to the collection and analysis of data within a simulated accounting/finance related scenario. This will involve identifying and analysing data and information in relation to business challenges, researching alternative solutions, and applying a judgement based on assessment of the evidence.
