Master of Business Administration - Finance MBA

Study Details

MBA 1yr Full Time or 2yrs with placement

 Our outstanding MBA Finance course offers you a truly life-changing experience and an exceptional opportunity to realise you full potential. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is the most coveted and internationally recognised postgraduate management degree in the world, and there's a good reason why. It is widely recognised as a passport to a successful management career, enabling managers with a functionalist role to take on a more senior, strategic position and empowering senior managers to gain the in-depth, strategic knowledge they need to climb even higher.

The MBA Finance will enable you to develop a critical understanding of the theoretical techniques, concepts and methods employed in financial and risk management. You will be exposed to different frameworks designed for the implementation of financial models. Emphasis will be placed on practical applications in various contexts with which finance professionals will be familiar and expected to be competent. Through real life case studies you will highlight limitations and strengths of financial models in terms of behavioural and technical pitfalls.

Delivered in a world-class learning environment, by internationally acclaimed academics and business leaders, the course integrates theory and practice to bring you  hands-on experience, inspiring teaching and a clear international perspective. Here at Nottingham Business School, we are proud to have developed an innovative and rigorous MBA with opportunities to personalise your learning around your ambitions. Significantly strengthening your management knowledge, leadership capabilities and understanding of global business.

Our innovative, intensive courses prepare you for a wide range of challenges inherent in managing organisations, enabling you to see the interconnectedness of your actions. Whichever you choose, you will acquire the knowledge you need to work effectively at a senior, strategic management level, empowering organisations to achieve their objectives.
