Study Details

MSc 1 year or 9 months full-time

This programme is ideal for anyone wanting to start or progress their career in the finance function of an organisation and then move into general management later. It is relevant to working in small businesses where the ability to control finances is essential, within the finance function of large business organisations, and also in public sector organisations.

You will gain a solid foundation in finance, an overview of the management functions within an organisation, and an introduction into the main ideas and functions of international business and marketing.

You can choose from a full range of options in both finance and management, so it is possible to tailor your studies to match your career goals. You can study the programme in an intensive 9-month format, or over 12-months.

In addition, intensive computing training covering Datastream, Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, BvD Orbis and Zephyr, and other financial databases and software systems including STATA and VBA, is incorporated into relevant modules.

The 9-month programme comprises five taught modules, four of which are compulsory modules and seven of which are selected from optional modules.

The 12-month programme gives you the option to study the Investment Analysis Dissertation (45 credits) plus five optional modules or the Management Dissertation (30 credits) with seven optional modules.
