Today financial management operates in a highly complex, interconnected and fast-moving international arena. Organisational objectives have to integrate a wide variety of considerations, from long-term stakeholder value to the short-term financial growth that is desired and demanded. Do you want to take on the challenge of being one of the new generation of chief financial officers (CFOs) with the complex skills to effectively manage the finances of large, SME and start-up businesses? Then the Master’s in Financial Management at Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) is for you.

RESEARCH EXPERTISE

Based on Utrecht University’s research expertise, this multidisciplinary Master’s gives you a broad and specific understanding of the financial management of organisations. You study with some of the world’s leading academics in the field of financial management.

CONTENT OF THE PROGRAMME

In the Master in Financial Management you will focus on:

  • How to raise capital (i.e. issuing shares and bonds);
  • How to allocate capital (capital and operational budgeting);
  • How to manage short-term resources;
  • How to deal with new alternative financing forms such as crowdfunding or fintech;
  • How to manage different corporate risks;
  • How to align individual motives to organisational motives via performance management and compensation systems;
  • How to effectively introduce changes in financial management policies within organisations.

Read more about the study programme.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

This MSc in Financial Management provides you with:

  • a unique, multidisciplinary and international programme
  • in which you learn to understand not just a firm’s finances, but also how to deal with economic, managerial, regulatory, and reporting issues to maximise enterprise value;
  • the latest economic and financial theory and the hard financial skills
  • to put theory into practice in an increasingly complex world;
  • the mindset to understand and solve trade-offs between short- and long-term objectives, between shareholders and stakeholders, and between financial and social responsibility;

The core objectives of this Master’s programme can be summarised by the five A’s of financial management: Attract, Allocate, Administer, Analyse, and Anticipate.

  • Attract: Attracting money involves key decisions on the source of financing. This programme will provide you with insights into the dynamics of international capital markets and how they can be used to raise capital for everything from start-ups to multinational mega-projects.
  • Allocate: In today’s fast-changing business environment, modern financial managers need a state-of-the-art tool-box to make complex capital budgeting decisions. Which projects in a company should get funding? How much and why? You will analyse how to estimate cash flows, to calculate costs of capital in both domestic and international settings, and to use a real option framework to handle highly uncertain and irreversible investment and allocation decisions.
  • Analyse: Financial managers need to constantly analyse and monitor the firm with respect to profitability, liquidity and solvency. This involves financial statement analysis and cost calculations. As a financial manager you also need to manage and monitor different risk exposures.
  • Administer: In support of analytical activities and systems, a financial manager needs several administering activities such as collecting, registering, consolidating and reporting financial data (quarterly and annual reports). Knowledge of financial accounting and expertise in treasury is important here.
  • Anticipate: An important task of the (chief) financial officer is to anticipate future events and cash flow streams. Cash planning, budgeting, investment planning, and risk assessment are crucial activities in this area.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Upon completion of the MSc in Financial Management you are prepared for a career in financial management within an SME or multinational organisation; or in a consulting firm. Graduates have taken on positions such as: financial trainee, financial management consultant, financial analyst, business consultant, business analyst, business trainee, assistant treasurer, or assistant controller. Although geared toward the financial side of management, this programme also provides a sound basis for more general managerial tasks. Read more about possible career prospects.

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".
