It is an intensive, thorough and challenging programme, designed to give you the theoretical and practical skills essential for managing today's businesses.

This course is suitable for both experienced corporate finance and financial management practitioners who want to add to their skills, and those looking for a career in the area.

  • This course is accredited by the Association of Corporate Treasurers and offers exemptions from their professional exams.
  • The programme has been developed in consultation with finance professionals at RBS Capital Markets, Commerzbank AG, Standard Chartered Bank and NatWest Bank to give you the practical, real-life skills employers require in this highly competitive sector.
  • We are one of only a handful of UK universities that offer a Bloomberg trading room, giving you the opportunity to develop the hands-on skills employers want.
  • There are regular talks from practising industry experts such as the former head of Financial Services Authority.
  • As well as studying an international curriculum, you will meet and work with students from a wide variety of countries and cultures who can add international insight to class discussions and working groups, and give you a global alumni network.
  • Kingston Business School has joined an elite group of global institutions to be awarded the prestigious international accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
