Leasing & Asset Finance (MA)


Course Description

The MA in Leasing & Asset Finance is delivered by Falmouth University in association with The Leasing Foundation.

The MA is part-time and aimed at those already working in the sector who wish to accelerate their career as well as those in a related finance and business area who wish to enter this dynamic industry. It is suitable for those working in organisations that can facilitate and benefit from the work-related projects that form the backbone of the programme. The course is delivered primarily online, with support from academic supervisors from Falmouth University and mentors from The Leasing Foundation.

This internationally recognised postgraduate qualification provides you with a resource for developing your career in the industry, so there is an emphasis on creativity, leadership and innovation.

There are three study blocks and each study block contains specific modules that explore different aspects of creativity, leadership and innovation in leasing and asset finance. All three blocks are linked by work-based projects that explore real business issues. If you successfully complete all three study blocks you will accumulate the required 180 credits for the award of an MA.

If you already have previous experience or relevant qualifications you may be eligible to claim up to 60 credits towards the MA and begin your study at block three.

Entry Requirements

Falmouth University welcomes applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds, and encourages applications from prospective students who do not necessarily hold conventional higher education entry qualifications.*

This process is called Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). Prior learning includes both formal or 'certified' learning (such as training courses not run by universities or colleges) and informal or 'experiential' learning (gained as a result of work experience or self-study).

The APL process lets you provide evidence of your formal learning, professional experience and self-directed study to enable the University to see if it can be recognised as appropriate preparation for entry to a course, or in some cases allow you to claim credits towards a specific qualification.

You'll need to complete an application, which is then assessed. Your application should demonstrate that you are able to study at the right level, and in the same subject area, for the course you have applied to.

In reviewing your application, we will try and assess whether your application is:

Authentic - does it reflect your own achievements and efforts?
Relevant - does the application describe what you have learned?
Sufficient - have you provided enough evidence of your prior learning?
Current - is your learning up to date and relevant?

What you'll do

- Study block 1
Study block one will take 30 weeks part-time to complete and consists of three modules: The Leasing and Asset Finance Industry; Leadership, Strategy and Innovation, and a work-based project including a two-day residential at Falmouth University, Penryn Campus, Cornwall. Each module will take approximately 200* hours to complete. The aims of the modules are:

- To develop a contemporary overview of the industry and obtain the key resources available to understand the industry
- To be critically aware of the drivers for change in the industry and the challenges and opportunities that the future affords the sector
- To explore innovation, strategy and leadership through case study analysis and in the current context of the industry
- To identify, plan and deliver a relevant research-led project relevant to your organisation

*This is the number of hours you will be expected to commit and includes the time you might need to complete your assessments, your self-organised learning, conducting online research, interaction with your fellow students online, the two-day residential and discussion with your academic supervisor/mentor.

- Study block 2
Study block two will take 30 weeks, part-time to complete and consists of a 200 hour* module on Creative Business, a 400-hour* work-based project including a two-day residential at Falmouth University, Penryn Campus, Cornwall. The aims of the modules are:

MA Final Project:

This is a substantial piece of research and analysis which should draw upon the learning from previous study blocks. It is anticipated that the project will centre upon your own organisation and may address areas such as leadership challenges, innovation, organisational design issues and their impact on the industry. Your project can take the form of a dissertation, internal strategy document or consultancy project.

This block includes a two-day residential that provides an opportunity to share your knowledge and insights with fellow students, your academic supervisor and mentors from the Foundation.

*This is the number of hours you will be expected to commit and includes the time you might need to complete your assessments, your self-organised learning, conducting online research, interaction with your fellow students online, the two-day residential and discussion with your academic supervisor/mentor.
