Financial Planning and Business Management (MSc)


Course Description

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 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 principal objective of these programmes is to examine knowledge claims and understanding of financial planning concepts, theories, behaviour and management practices, and to develop your skills to allow you to undertake a meaningful piece of applied research. The outcome of your research will add to the exiting body of knowledge in your chosen area and make a contribution to the development and status of financial planning as a profession.

Feedback from graduates suggest that your experiences and attainment of the MSc qualification will provide opportunities for you to add value to, and to differentiate, the financial planning services you provide.

Special Features

• You will be taught in the multi-award-winning winning Business School on All Saints Campus.
• This programme has an advanced standing route for mature students who have relevant professional qualifications and substantial work experience in a financial planning environment. Through advanced standing we can give you academic credit for your current qualifications. Consequently you only need to study selected units and can achieve an MSc in a shorter time frame. The tuition fees for this route are also lower because you only pay for the units you need to take rather than having to study all the units for the MSc.
• This programme 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’ experience of supervising individuals with little or no previous experience of the rigours of academic research.
