Course Summary

The MSc degree designed to produce fully rounded managers with an emphasis on finance. You’ll focus on how a business creates and measures value, and how to approach accounting and finance from a strategic perspective. The programme combines finance and accounting with a detailed examination of other disciplines required for the management of organisations. This also allows you to consider financial decision making from multiple perspectives. Key elements include: business economics, operations management, strategic accounting and financial management, international business, marketing planning and strategy. You’ll benefit from facilities such as the Bradford Trading Room, which provides access to real-life market trading data provided by Bloomberg Professional. This will give you a feel for real investment decisions made in industry, and how to deal responsibly with financial and economic market data. As you will study and gain skills in all areas of business, you’ll have a broad range of career paths open to you on graduation. The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) accredit this programme.
