More Information

Those who are reasonably certain they wish for a career in Accounting should consider MH403 which maximises Accounting exemptions. However modules such as Money and Banking, and Financial Institutions are not available to specialist Accountants (MH403). Some exemptions are available to those who choose to study Financial Accounting in all three years through MH401, taking either Finance (FIN) or International Finance and Economics (IFE).
