This programme is ideal for those who wish to develop these skills and pursue careers in the global world of finance. Students will be taught to make competent financing, investment and risk management decisions, to suit an organisation’s objectives and circumstances.

Students on this programme have a unique opportunity to gain a MSc in Financial Management from the University of Greenwich and a MSc in Global Financial Management from ESCM School of Business and Management in Poitiers, France.
