Learning & Teaching

The teaching philosophy of this programme is to deliver wherever possible each module with a multi-disciplinary teaching team, providing a more effective framework to encourage and promote an integrated understanding of the field. The role of the module leader will be to co-ordinate, and in effect oversee the delivery of content by the modular team, ensuring that learning outcomes are met.

Module teaching teams will be drawn from the course teaching team. This will not only enhance student learning but provide teaching staff with the opportunity to develop their own knowledge and understanding of other business and management disciplines. It is hoped that after a short period of time such an approach to teaching will shape and direct content in a complementary and mutually reinforcing way, allowing for the development of multi-disciplinary assignments and projects.

Assessment

The assessments for this programme are many and varied as would be expected with 6 core modules and 13 options. Within the cores you will have 3 three hour examinations, essays, reflective logs and an assessed role play exercise.

Employability & Careers

The demand for highly skilled and knowledgeable finance professionals shows no signs of abating over the coming years – and in the view of some may well increase. This demand has been instrumental in designing this flexible and challenging suite of programmes. In order to maximise employability the programme learning outcomes are geared towards supplying students with the knowledge, skills and understanding that the finance industry requires. A key component of this is our new module Professional Development and Practice in Business and Management

The programme seeks to meet individual and industry needs by developing students with higher-level cognitive skills and abilities who also possess an excellent practical understanding of "how to apply" rather than just "why it happens".

Programme description

The MSc in Financial Management is a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of key areas in accounting and corporate finance.

Financial Management is one of the key disciplines necessary for the successful management of business corporations and other organisations. Studying the theories underlying Financial Management practices allows students to understand and explain the financial behaviours of organisations.

The MSc in Financial Management is a comprehensive study of key areas in accounting and corporate finance. It is designed for graduates interested in a career in the finance function of a company, in business analysis or in management consultancy practice. The MSc takes a broad internal management perspective rather than a narrow external or financial market based perspective.

Graduates of Financial Management can work in two main areas of an organisation. Within Accounting, financial management sits in management accounting - the internal facing function - which services the information needs of the organisation’s management. Another option is a role in the Corporate Finance function which is concerned with managing the finances of the organisation - in treasury management, resource allocation, capital structuring and financial risk management.

The programme is structured so that students specialise through courses with choices including advanced corporate finance, advanced finance theory, behavioural finance and market anomalies, derivatives, investment management, public sector financial management.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, problem solving in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of the programme will be expected to gain employment at managerial level, with the prospects of progressing to Financial Director or Chief Executive in the UK and Internationally. However they will be equally well equipped to take on an entrepreneurial role in a Small to Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) or to advise SMEs on a regional or national basis. This is important in Welsh economy where indigenous SMEs are vital to future economic development and growth.

It would also provide a route for qualified accountants and finance professionals to obtain a level 7 masters award in financial management. Qualified chartered accountants are likely to only have to complete the part 2 dissertation stage so this should provide an attractive proposition to this market. Within the current economic climate, the award should provide additional job security for both qualified and part qualified finance professionals.
