The field of financial management forms part of the structure of all organisations and the general health of the economy. In every arena, the effective financial management of funds enables businesses to operate successfully, achieving and exceeding their set goals. Engaging in this course of study will provide you with a perennial skillset, and a valuable piece of professional development if you are looking to take your career to the next level of responsibility, and salary bracket.

The overall aim of the MSc Financial Management programme is to produce postgraduates who are able to make a valid and meaningful contribution within the field of finance. This will be achieved by exposing you to the current theories, concepts and developments within this discipline and, by doing so, you will become competent and thoughtful practitioners.

You will develop an understanding of the interpretation, uses, and analysis of financial and investment information in a practical domestic and international context. Your reflective, critical and evaluative thinking will be improved through exposure to contemporary and current issues in finance and via teaching and learning that is strongly supported by research and professional practice.

This intellectually challenging programme of study will focus on current issues, themes and applications within the field of finance and financial management, and your analytical, critical and problem solving skills will be extended through the academic evaluation of literature and current financial practices.
