Professionals with the CIPFA accountancy qualification can for the first time undertake a top-up MSc in Accounting and Finance from the University of Northampton. This innovation follows a new partnership between the University of Northampton and Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA).
This MSc programme has been jointly developed to recognise the level and depth of the CIPFA accounting qualification and to further the knowledge of accounting and finance in a manner which provides a sound framework for those wishing to pursue further study, or to enhance employment opportunities.
It is focused on the accounting challenges that the people in public finance face today and how they relate to wider social, technical and economic environment. CIPFA qualified students undertake only three modules to achieve this masters degree. The three elements are practical and highly relevant to public finance professionals keen to advance their thinking and professional practice.
