The popular MSc Financial Management has recently been reviewed and re-validated. The driving force behind many of the changes and improvements were comments of previous students. Students now have a far broader range of option modules (and pathways) enabling them to design a Master’s level programme that aligns more clearly with their career ambitions.

All the Finance based Masters programmes within the School of Management have full access to the Financial Times on-line and the opportunity to learn and carry out practical work in our dedicated, state-of-the-art Bloomberg Financial Lab. The virtual financial platform allows you to access and engage with live market data through applying practical evaluation and financial modelling. The programme also offers you an opportunity to gain the Bloomberg certificate - Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC), which is widely recognised in the banking and financial industry.

You will be taught by academically qualified and enthusiastic staff with research and consultancy experience and links to industry. Your high quality learning experience comprises lectures and discussions supported by group work, presentations, statistical computer labs and case studies. Your learning will be assessed by a mixture of coursework assignments throughout the year, and by examinations in January and/or May.
