Course content

A challenging and rewarding discipline no matter what the organisation - financial management has the power to make or break a business. Now, students who do not meet the requirements of a 12 month postgraduate course can still pursue a career in this exciting, fast-paced financial sector by completing an extra three months of study to bring them up to speed.

Why study MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert Financial Management (15 month) at Middlesex
At Middlesex, we believe that a lack of experience or qualifications is not always a reflection of your true potential. That's why we created this 15 month postgraduate course of study in Financial Management, to help those people who do not qualify for our 12 month programme gain the essential knowledge and skills they need to catch up and complete the same level of study as the rest of our postgraduates. We've tailored the course to include three extra months of study that cover the essential skills and theories you need to embark on an advanced course in Financial Management.
After completing these initial three months of groundwork in accounting and finance, you'll explore advanced modules that focus on key areas of financial management and how these relate to the real world of business, such as interpreting and critically evaluating financial statements and applying decision-making skills to complex financial situations. At Middlesex, we value skills training as highly as we value theory, so you can expect to not only learn the advanced concepts behind financial management but the practical ways in which you can apply this knowledge within your profession.
