Hertfordshire’s MSc Accounting and Financial Management is all about developing the knowledge you need to interpret and use financial information, so you can make informed, intelligent business decisions.
If you don’t have a background in accounting and finance, it will help you build the skills you need to move into this sector and shape a career in business, banking or financial management. If you’ve already studied or worked in accountancy or finance, this Master’s course is an outstanding opportunity to explore your subject in greater depth – and from diverse new perspectives.
Studying as a postgraduate here at Hertfordshire, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a body of the latest academic knowledge, learning how to apply it in a managerial context. Exploring its concepts and applications will help you develop higher-level analytical skills, enabling you to critically examine business challenges from an accounting and finance perspective.
While completing this Master’s course won’t give you exemptions from professional accounting exams, it will give you an excellent postgraduate-level understanding of your subject and a firm foundation for further development.
Hertfordshire Business School has close relationships with a whole range of accounting and finance professional bodies, which means our postgraduate teaching – and your learning – is informed by the latest industry best practice. We also collaborate with leading organisations from both the public and private sector, bringing fascinating real-world insights into all of our courses.

Career opportunities

Most of Hertfordshire Master’s students go on to careers in banking, accounting firms or public service organisations like the NHS, either as an accountant or in other financial management roles. However, the uniqueness of the Hertfordshire course means that when you leave us you’ll be equipped to go into a hugely diverse range of businesses seeking decision-making, accounting or finance expertise.
You can also choose to continue your postgraduate studies by working towards professional accounting and finance qualifications or progressing to a PhD.
