This part-time programme has been developed to offer thought-leaders in the financial planning sector the opportunity to contribute to the broader development of the profession through the study of financial planning concepts, theories and models, and engagement in applied research.
You will work with like-minded individuals and be supported by academic staff, with expertise in the financial planning arena, throughout the research process, culminating in the submission of your dissertation.
The course is delivered by academics with an appreciation of the issues being addressed by financial planning communities and research expertise that is underpinned by academic study, professional qualifications and several years of experience of supervising and supporting individuals with little or no previous experience of the rigours of academic research.
Our postgraduate programmes aim to combine academic knowledge from leading research in the area with the professional skills that employers are seeking.
The Faculty is home to the Centre for Business and Society, which brings together a number of synergistic research centres and knowledge clusters and our doctoral school of PhD researchers who work with teaching staff on the design of the programme.
Assessment methods include written assignments that will require you to engage in critical evaluations and reflections upon academic theory and management practice.
You will be required to design a research plan to explore opportunities to develop existing theory, knowledge and understanding in your chosen area.
Assessments will be both formative and summative in nature, enabling you to reflect upon your progress, as well as providing the basis for appraisal of your achievement at each stage of the programme.
