Finance

The Master of Science provides an opportunity for graduates to obtain advanced research skills and knowledge in a professional learning environment. A Master of Science (MS) degree can provide you with the foundation of knowledge and key competencies you'll need throughout your career

The field of finance is centered upon money management at all levels. Finance students often study a broad range of subjects from investment banking to personal financial planning. They may focus on a subfield like accounting or business finance right away, or wait to specialize with a graduate degree.

Distance learning is a method of delivering education to students who are not physically present on campus. Various studies have shown that distance learning programmes can be as efficient and effective as conventional classroom programmes sometimes even better!
