Course content

Our one year, full-time MSc in Management programmes are designed to provide you with the tools, techniques and knowledge to succeed in business.

Across all sectors and at all levels of business, financial management is fundamental to the success of organisations. By studying our MSc Management (Finance), you will build your knowledge and expertise in this area, giving you a strong platform from which to launch a career in management with a specific financial focus.

The programme consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice- based business project or a research-based dissertation.

Core and elective modules

You will study:

  • Business Economics and Accounting
  • Corporate Finance for Managers
  • Financial Management
  • Fundamentals of Finance
  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Strategy

You will then choose two elective modules. The list of modules may vary from year to year, but has typically included Employee Reward Strategy, Corporate Governance, Decision Making and Business Modelling, Global Business, East Asian Business and Management and Mergers and Acquisitions.

Dissertation

In the third term, you will carry out an original research project. This may be an independent piece of work or, alternatively, you may decide to develop a more applied project with an appropriate organisation. Supervised by a faculty member with relevant experience, you’ll investigate in greater detail a subject that you’ve already studied as part of your programme. This is an opportunity for you to develop your business insight and present your analysis and ideas in a scholarly and professional manner.
