Important information: academic review of Manchester Metropolitan University Cheshire campus

Manchester Metropolitan University has been undertaking a review of the long-term future of academic provision at its Cheshire campus. It has now been confirmed that the University will withdraw from the Cheshire campus. This means that we expect the campus to close in the summer of 2019.

As the withdrawal from the campus will be a phased process we are still pleased to receive applications for one year full time postgraduate taught courses starting in 2017 on the Cheshire campus. We also continue to welcome applications for part time postgraduate courses of two years in duration in the Exercise and Sport Science department starting in 2017. Applications for courses that are expected to take longer than two years to complete are currently on hold.

Developed to address the needs of a business environment chatacterised by change and increased complexity, this programme is designed to develop sophisticated managers with practical skills in strategic thinking and a deep understanding of the financial aspects of modern business.

With a flexible, modular programme tailored to your needs, this course is ideal for people preparing to embark upon a career in management or those already working professionally seeking a career change or to hone their financial management skills.

As a full time course, this programme is delivered during the day, but for part time students two study patterns are offered; afternoon/evening or evening only, although some units may not be available in both patterns. Depending on electives, some units may be available on a blended workshop basis.

For those already in business, this course provides opportunities to gain a career enhancing qualification and to share financial management experiences whilst developing new skills and expertise

Accounting and Finance is a thriving industry that offers a wealth of opportunity for graduate employment. This is a ‘high rewards’ sector that is typically associated with excellent remuneration and the possibility to progress to the level of Finance Director or even Chief Executive.

UK accountancy qualifications are recognised and respected throughout the world and graduates that secure positions at large international firms can benefit from overseas secondments.

Alternatively, it is possible to become self-employed or secure work in other sectors that will enable you to follow a more management focused career route.
