For a career in finance and business management you need a solid understanding of management and our MBA Finance is an exciting mix of strategy with the finance modules needed to boost your career in this fast moving and growing sector.

You’ll spend time analysing numbers as well as business plans autonomously and as part of an organisation’s senior leadership team, enhancing your prospects for future employers.


This is your opportunity to learn advanced level skills across a range of financial areas, including working with complex data and using sophisticated mathematical and simulation modelling techniques.
