The experience

Overview

At MBS, we offer a comprehensive program to support your learning, develop your skills and enrich your degree. We encourage you to be involved both on and off campus, and to make the most of your time outside the classroom.

Top-Tier Research & High-Quality Teaching

Accounting today is extremely sophisticated. An accountant is a strategic adviser and business partner who must have a good understanding of business issues and processes, as well as the skills necessary for sound decision-making. Accounting studies will enable you to understand the financial structure of an organisation, and to produce and analyse financial information.
