The percentage of Accounting and Finance graduates continuing into full-time postgraduate study is under 10% about half of the figure for graduates overall. Most will study for a professional accountancy qualification through part-time study while working rather than a Masters degree. Higher degrees in Accounting and Finance tend to be academic rather than vocational, although there are exceptions such as the MSc in International Securities, Investment and Banking at the University of Reading. Graduates who do not wish to follow a finance-related career may consider a general postgraduate business degree, such as the MBA; however, as noted above, many graduate employers are happy to recruit Accounting & Finance graduates into general business functions straight from their first degree.
