The MSc in Finance will provide you with an understanding of a broad range of financial concepts and their application to a range of management and organisational contexts.
You will gain a greater understanding of how finance is central to organisational decision-making by looking at key areas including risk management, financial statements, strategic financial management and financial analysis and investment. You will be able to pursue your own areas of interest in two core modules and through your dissertation.
As well as gaining a deeper theoretical and conceptual knowledge of finance, this degree will develop your ability to analyse and evaluate management problems and make sound strategic decisions in your professional role. It will also develop your practical transferable skills including the ability to conduct independent research, both online and offline; time management, verbal and written communication, presenting and planning.
