Course Summary

The field of financial management forms part of the structure of all organisations and the general health of the economy. Engaging in this course of study will provide you with a perennial skillset, and a valuable piece of professional development if you are looking to take your career to the next level of responsibility, and wage bracket. Financial managers advise clients on the decisions that will direct their business in the most desirable directions. You will be able to occupy this kind of advisory position, or similar, in a wide range of interesting sectors. You may, for example, find yourself working in the charity sector, retail, the healthcare sector, universities, or multinational corporations to name but a few. If you are interested in strategic analysis and making a contribution to the long term goals and success of the organisations that you advise, then you can look forward to the further development of your financial acumen.

The overall aim of the MSc Financial Management programme is to produce postgraduates who are able to make a valid and meaningful contribution within the field of finance. This will be achieved by exposing you to the current theories, concepts and developments within this discipline and by doing so, you will become competent and thoughtful practitioners. This intellectually challenging programme of study will focus on current issues, themes and applications within the field of finance and financial management, and your analytical, critical and problem solving skills will be extended through the academic evaluation of literature and current financial practices.

You will have the opportunity to develop your practical skills through case studies and worldwide events, by applying financial and management knowledge to improve organisational effectiveness and efficiency. Furthermore, you will undertake in-depth research in various industries, through completion of a range of assessments and a dissertation. This real-world focus will provide immediate value to your present and future employers.
