MSc/PGDip Financial Management

This programme is ideal for those seeking a management career in the finance area. It is ideally suited to students with a business, economics or numerate background. The first half of the taught section focuses heavily on core areas of finance; it also provides an intensive course in accounting for those students who do not have an accounting background. The second half of the programme allows students to choose from a wide range of specialist finance options, and these are supported by a core course in financial markets.

Aims of the programme

  • To enable students to become competent and thoughtful practitioners in the wider field of finance
  • To develop students' reflective, critical and evaluative thinking and judgement and to expose them to the contemporary issues in the field through teaching that is strongly supported by research and professional practice
  • To provide an intellectually demanding academic programme of study which emphasises the students' ability to analyse, synthesise and evaluate key theoretical concepts and practical applications in the accounting and finance subject area
  • To provide a flexible programme which delivers a strong theoretical underpinning in finance through compulsory courses and which enables students to pursue coherently related areas of specialism by selecting particular options and a dissertation title
