Master's programs

Forensic accounting is a growing niche that attracts people who can combine the curiosity of a detective with excellent numeracy skills and attention to detail. Salaries can rise quickly after entering the career and there is no requirement to have studied accounting at undergraduate level.

Taught modules include Fraud Examination, Financial Crime and Fraudulent Statement Analysis. ‘Forensic’ means suitable for use in court and you’ll learn how to identify and present evidence to the highest standards.

You’ll also undertake a double module on Global Management Competencies alongside other postgraduate students at Newcastle Business School, to help you stand out on the international jobs market.

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, workshops, case discussions and practical exercises. As this is a master’s course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated enquiry and reflection.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment methods include assignments, exams and presentations. Your master’s dissertation will form a major part of the assessment.
