Course Summary

Course overview

Are you an ambitious executive looking to increase your salary or change role, industry or location? Transform your career with this flexible part-time MBA degree.

The 18-month Manchester Global MBA (Finance Accelerated) programme is for candidates with professional accountancy qualifications such as ACCA and CIMA. You will study the same curriculum as our standard 24-month Global MBA but receive an exemption from the core business accounting and finance course.

Teaching and learning

Our experiential 'Manchester Method' teaching approach focuses on group work, practice-based learning and reflection. We don't just give you the theory; we show you how to use it to get the results you want.

Career opportunities

Whether you are looking to accelerate your career, change direction or set up your own company, the Global MBA (Finance Accelerated) will give you the knowledge and transferable skills you need to succeed.

Our dedicated Postgraduate Careers Service knows that your objectives are ambitious and unique. Expect to boost your self-awareness and be challenged by experienced career advisors who will support you throughout your journey - from first steps to final offer and negotiation. You can focus on the career in front of you when you have all this behind you.
