Why this course?
Differentiating yourself in a crowded graduate job market is crucial no matter which country you choose to work in. A postgraduate business qualification which has fully transferable skills across different organisations, as well as across international borders, is critical to that differentiation.
If you're looking to develop your knowledge of finance and management simultaneously before embarking on your first professional business role, then the MSc Finance & Management is the course for you. Or, if you're a graduate with some business experience, this qualification will provide the opportunity for you to further progress your career in a finance and/or management related role.
Building on the excellent reputation we've achieved for both financial and general management programmes, our department of Accounting & Finance and Department of Strategy & Organisation have worked together to develop this course. It's a one year, full-time masters degree designed to give you a competitive edge no matter where your future business career takes you.
It offers ambitious graduates a thorough grounding in both financial and management principles. This in-depth understanding of both subject areas will be applicable to roles in any organisation, where a good knowledge of finance and management is required.
There are a number of elective classes you'll have to choose from. If you're interested in studying abroad, the ‘Managing in Europe’ class gives you the opportunity to do this with classes taught at Toulouse Business School in France.
During the summer you'll do two research projects in finance and management. There may be some opportunities to work with companies too.
