In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Students interested in finance may want to study professional accounting. Programs can vary in course offerings, but common classes are managerial and cost accounting, government accounting and auditing, income taxation, business law and information risk management.
