We invite applications from well-qualified candidates whose research interests correspond to our areas of research expertise focused on Finance.

The School of Management offers a range of programmes in accounting and finance areas. We have divided these programmes into two programme suites. The first is designed for students with any undergraduate degree who would now like a career in finance. The second is a suite of advanced programmes for students who have already studied some finance at the undergraduate level and now wish to extend their previous studies to enhance their employability and career prospects.
