Educational aims of the Programme The programmes aim to provide a high quality education that is intellectually rigorous and up-to-date, as well as relevant to the needs of future accounting and finance professionals in the financial sector or any other large corporations and the academia. They provide theoretical framework and practical skills that accounting and finance professionals working in banks and financial corporations need in order to cope with an increasingly complex and global financial environment. They also provide a valuable foundation for those considering continuing their academic studies in the field of applied finance and accounting leading to a PhD level. The programmes provide the students with the basis for developing their own approach to learning and personal development. The compulsory modules aim to provide not only a rigorous treatment of the relevant theory, but also the quantitative techniques necessary to understand the literature and undertake empirical investigations in the areas of accounting and finance. The optional modules aim to offer students a broader perspective on the subject matter and allow them to specialise in areas that are of particular interest to them. 19. Programme learning outcomes the programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, skills, qualities and other attributes in the following areas: Knowledge and Understanding Teaching and learning strategies A systematic, in-depth understanding of the development, issues and influences relevant to area of accounting and finance. A high level theoretical and applied knowledge of finance and accounting practice. An understanding of the research process. The teaching and learning strategy aims in the most effective and efficient ways to provide a framework of knowledge within which students can take responsibility for their own learning, to introduce students to the contemporary issues, latest thinking and research, to provide opportunities for students to consider and evaluate the issues and to explore them further with their peers and teaching staff. To achieve these aims, the teaching and learning will

2 include: Large group sessions that are designed to provide overall framework of the existing knowledge and sufficient information for students to follow up details independently; Large group sessions that will introduce students to new issues, controversial topics, recent research etc. Small group sessions that will provide opportunity for students to discuss and demonstrate their learning with their peers and lecturers in details Individual supervision, particularly in the dissertation, in which students will be able to explain, discuss and refine their ideas with their supervisor. As a guide it is expected that there will be two different forms of assessment for each module, with the weighting between assessments based on the intended learning outcomes and justified in the module document. The implication is that a sensible balance across the programme should be achieved between: Examination (open or close book, short answer or multiple choices) and assignment (including essays, case studies, practical exercises, problem solving etc.); Continuous and terminal assessment; Formative and summative assignment (including tutorial discussion, practising past examination questions during the class and feeding back within their peers and lecturers, additional online discussion questions via surreylearn); Individual and group assessment; Individually supervised dissertation. Skills and other attributes - Intellectual / cognitive skills Demonstrate high level learning and problem solving abilities in the range of modules studied. Conduct accounting and finance-oriented research using appropriate research design and methodology (not required for PG Certificate), to collect and analyse data, to interpret findings and communicate results efficiently. Teaching and learning strategies The strategy for each individual module is designed to contain a mix of teaching and learning methods to provide a rich and varied learning environment. Sessions may take the form of traditional lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops or they may be delivered through paper or electronic and online resource.

3 Skills and other attributes - Professional practical skills An ability to independently evaluate critical approaches and techniques relevant to financial sector; An ability to independently evaluate business/financial reports and relevant information with justification and relate them to existing knowledge structures and methodologies Skills and other attributes - Key / transferable skills An ability of demonstrating competence in a range of skills that are relevant to the needs of future financial professionals, irrespective of their sector of operation, especially in financial sector; critical thinking, analysis and synthesis (not required for PG Certificate); using computer software for financial calculation (not required for PG Certificate); reasoning; problem solving; independent research; (not required for PG Certificate); presentation; report writing (not required for PG Certificate).

Programme structure including the route / pathway / field requirements, levels modules, credits, awards and further information on the mode of study. The programme offers a balanced portfolio consisting finance and accounting. The programme has also some company and investment-oriented elements into the modules of International Corporate Governance, Investment analysis and Risk Management. Semester 1 Three compulsory modules and one core module will be delivered in Semester 1, including one accounting module, one finance module, one quantitative module and research methods, as follows. Principles of Accounting is an existing module for the MSc programme in International Financial Management. This module introduces all the essential accounting knowledge and skills from international perspectives required at Master s level. Foundations of Finance is an existing module for the MSc programme in International Financial Management. This module introduces essential background knowledge of finance from international perspectives. Research Methods is a well established Master s core module in the School which introduces essential skills for the dissertation. Quantitative Methods is a new module developed by Surrey Business School. The module is highly numerate and includes all the necessary quantitative skills required for finance and accounting studies at Master s level. It is intended to compliment the general Research Methods module by providing a grounding in the specific higher level quantitative techniques needed to interrogate and structure accounting and financial data rather than the more general analytic and design strategies covered in Research Methods.

4 Semester 2 Two compulsory modules (one finance module and one accounting module) and a range of five different optional modules out of which students will have to select two modules. The modules in this semester cover a wide range of applied finance and accounting, having also the element of international context. Compulsory modules: Corporate Finance is an existing module for the MSc programme in International Financial Management. It builds on the Foundations of Finance module (delivered in the first semester) and further explores how corporate financing relates to the financial goals of corporations and its implication for corporate bankruptcy and takeovers. International Financial Reporting is an existing module for the MSc programme in International Financial Management. It builds on the Principles of Accounting module (delivered in the first semester) and introduces financial reporting standards and financial report analysis for firm s international operations. Optional Modules: International Corporate Governance is an existing module for the MSc programme in International Financial Management. It takes an international approach to corporate governance, contextualising its development and providing a stimulating range of empirical practitioner and academic research, and topical mini case studies. It also introduces institutional and legal systems from both government and firm s viewpoints that influence the effectiveness of corporate governance Derivative Securities is a new module targeted at students interested in understanding the purpose and use of derivative securities (i.e. financial engineering tools). These include specifically the forwards, futures, swaps and options. Investment Analysis is a new module which studies the various stages of the investment management process from the award of an investment sponsor s mandate through investment manager selection to the portfolio and performance outcome of that selection. This module is particularly useful for students considering a career in finance; investment management, investment banking, investment consultancy or asset management but is also useful for those involved in other areas of the financial sector such as insurance and pensions; the main users of investment management services. International Finance is an existing module for the MSc programme in International Financial Management. It introduces the essential contemporary issues in international finance area and the theory and application of financial derivatives. Risk Management is a new module focuses on the types of risk that arise for a business including: market risk, credit risk and interest risk. This module considers financial risk management strategies; how risk is evaluated; the methods that are available to hedge against risk and the strategies that are employed to mitigate risk. This is complemented by consideration of operational risk and key risk management issues for financial institutions including regulatory issues such as Basel II. Finally, students should also undertake a Dissertation after Semester 2, which accounts for 60 credits. The dissertation is the final element of the programme, providing an opportunity for a sustained period of research. It allows students to concentrate on topics that are of particular interest to them and it draws upon a range of different aspects of the taught programme particularly the Research Methods module. It also gives an opportunity for students to work independently with individual supervision.
