    Im about to graduate in the summer with a degree in financial economics. On course for a 2.1 possibly a 1st. I furfill criteria for a graduate job regarding UCAS points. I would like to do a masters in accounting before i seek a graduate job in the profession. My course didnt cover any accounting concepts.
    Can anyone tell me if they regard this course highly at all? It would be ideal, however if it's a waste of time id rather go elsewhere. It's relatively cheap and covers alot of concepts.
    I also haven't decided if it's ACCA or CIMA i wont to do, so is this option a little narrow?

    thanks for the help

    None. If you want to become any form of accountant, a masters is a waste of time and money. Professional qualifications are what it's all about, not your degree or masters.

    Join a graduate scheme for CA/ACA/CIMA/Actuarial/whatever. If you don't feel you can pass the interviews then it's because of your competencies and adding another few letters after your name in the form of a certificate is not going to help with that.
