What does the M.Sc. Professional Accountancy program entail

In order to pursue the M.Sc. in Professional Accountancy, the student needs to complete all Applied Skills Exams and Strategic Professional Essentials Exam conducted by ACCA. The student will require approximately a year to complete the requirements of the program. However, the student may choose to fast track and complete all modules simultaneously, thereby cutting the course short by a few months. Every module in the course includes a thesis component, which requires the student to submit a dissertation.

What do you need to do to get the degree?

To obtain an M.Sc. Degree, a student who has not yet completed all the ACCA course requirements, needs to complete the following modules in addition to a project and a group activity.

  • Strategic Financial Management – This module covers Corporate Finance, Mergers and IPOs, Investment Management and International Capital Markets.

  • Strategic Financial Project – This module helps you learn business research skills and how to apply them to a simulated real-world accounting and/or finance challenge. It will help the student to analyse data about business challenges, research alternative approaches and make judgements, based on the evidence you find.

The M.Sc Program in totality includes 

If a student has already obtained their ACCA qualification, the student only needs to complete one module (Global Issues for the Finance Professional) in addition to the Strategic Financial Project.
