Course content

The MSc Finance and Management provides a good foundation in finance together with an overview of management functions within an organisation. It is an ideal qualification for anyone wanting to start or progress their career in the finance function of an organisation and then move into general management later. It is relevant to working in small businesses where the ability to control finances is essential, within the finance function of large business organisations, and also in public sector organisations.

The programme offers a choice of the full range of options in both finance and management, so it is possible to tailor this programme to match your career goals.

Students can study the programme in an intensive nine-month format, or over 12 months. Both formats offer a firm foundation in financial management, investment decisions and research skills in finance, as well as an introduction to the main ideas and functions of international business and marketing. If studying over nine months students then study corporate finance, strategy, plus four additional options in the second term. Short investment analysis can be selected as one of the options. With the 12 month format students study the Investment Analysis Dissertation (45 credits) plus up to four optional modules.

In addition, intensive computing training covering Datastream, Thomson Reuters, and other financial databases and software systems, is incorporated into relevant modules.
