This MSc is a specialised Masters, which provides in-depth knowledge of key finance and management concepts, offering a powerful boost to your future career progression.
During the course, we encourage collaborative working through Peer Action Learning Sets. As a member of a Learning Set, you will share practical and academic experiences and reflect critically on case studies, debates and problems.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the intellectual tools and knowledge to tackle real-world issues within the financial sector or within financial departments of organisations. Successful completion of this course also provides exemptions for 11 exam papers from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
Our aim is to enhance your success in challenging management roles that carry above-average responsibility and salaries.
We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, seminars, class discussions, case studies, group work, presentations and applied study.
Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters requires a higher level of independent working.
Assessment methods include assignments, reports, presentations, and peer- and self-assessment.
