Financial Management MSc


Course Description

The finance sector is at the heart of the economy of every nation. The jobs there are interesting, challenging and highly lucrative. However, competition for the jobs is often very intense, especially in the area of financial management. This programme equips students with a broader, deeper, range of the knowledge and skills required for the jobs than any of its kind currently available - a valuable competitive advantage.

Students graduating from this programme will gain:

A critical knowledge of corporate finance and foreign exchange markets;
The ability to interpret and analyse financial statements;
The ability to use a wide range of financial modelling techniques to analyse data, conduct research and forecast variables;
Critical knowledge of the literature on entrepreneurial finance;
Skills for valuing securities, managing risks, and managing treasury departments;
A firm grounding in the research training and skills needed for starting a PhD course.
These knowledge and skills are in high demand in banks, insurance companies, stock broking firms and other industries in the finance sector. They are also in high demand in the treasury departments of many local and multinational companies
