MSc in Finance and Management

General

Program Description

Overview

The MSc in Finance and Management is designed to offer modern knowledge in the area of corporate finance and business management of companies. It combines key finance-related courses with business management courses focused on project management and strategy.

Our MSc in Finance and Management is suited to those who seek careers, as say, financial analysts, in the finance functions of organizations and who intend to move into more managerial positions as their careers develop. The knowledge and skills gained from the course are relevant to working within any business – in a small business where the ability to control finances is vital, or in large businesses and public sector organizations where an understanding of financial management and its wider role in the overall management of the organisation is critical.

English language requirements

Where English was not the medium of instruction at secondary school, applicants must demonstrate English language proficiency equivalent to IELTS 6.5 (with all elements passed at 6.0 or above). Applicants who have completed secondary and tertiary education will need to provide documentary evidence. A minimum of one-year full-time study in English will be required.

Application deadline

Our Dubai Campus operates a rolling year-round admissions process: as soon as one intake has closed we begin accepting applications for the next one. It is also possible for you to defer your start date for up to a year.

Most students apply 6–10 months in advance of their chosen intake. We can accept applications up until 3 weeks before the start of each intake but you should note that a late application will almost certainly mean a delay in the provision of essential administrative services, such as your student matriculation card (without which you won't be able to access the library or online services).
