Module Description

This project aims to enable students to develop a more focused understanding of an accounting and/or related issue that is of interest to related stakeholders or society in general. It relies on the knowledge and skills acquired in the modules studied and reinforces the critical mind-set that is expected of IDEA academy students.

This project brings together the knowledge and understanding gained during the accounting with management and analytics degree programme and allows students to apply and integrate their research skills, with the objective to critically investigate a topical issue within the broad area of accounting and/or its related areas (e.g. audit, risk, regulation, governance, financial markets, taxation, financial management).

This project is a self-directed project in which students identify a problem or question to investigate. Students will be assisted by a tutor and given guidance on how to prepare, plan and complete the research-led project. By the end of this module, students are expected to be able to use their research skills effectively and to apply their competencies and knowledge to engage in situations simulating real-life professional tasks and assignments.
