Business - Accounting - Research
The MLitt programme in Accounting creates a framework that complements and supports independent research in the field of accounting, whilst providing milestones through which the graduate student will advance, and structured educational inputs to support and develop the student.
The student, on registration, holds an introductory meeting with their supervisor(s) where a customized and individualized programme of research investigation is balanced with supporting taught modules. These supported modules are identified from a suite of modules that make up the structured PhD programme in business, accounting or finance. Annual progress reviews are part of the research masters programme in business, accounting or finance and completion of requisite generic/transferable skills modules will be taken into account when assessing student progress. Students are required to complete a written thesis and viva voce examination. Students will not be permitted to submit their thesis (or equivalent) for examination without having accumulated the required amount of credits.
In addition to developing their own research topic with their supervisor(s), students' will be required to take 10 credits worth of modules over the duration of their programme of doctoral research. 5 of these will be generic/transferable modules, and 5 in subject/specialist modules.
