Finance, Markets and Organisations

Module code: MN7365

This module provides an introduction to the study of finance and accounting and the concepts, institutions, and real-life practices of these fields from an interdisciplinary perspective that draws from economic sociology, innovation studies, information systems, marketing, communications, psychology, and political science.

The aim of this approach is to provide you with a knowledge of alternative approaches to the studying of finance and accounting that can complement established views. The discussion of real-life cases is an integral part of the module. You will be able to see how the knowledge acquired in the lectures about the social and technical dimensions of accounting and finance apply to real-life finance and accounting situations.
