Course summary

OVERVIEW

Strong management of financial performance and accounts are key to the success of any organisation. At Manchester Met, we’ll help you find new ways to deal with the issues facing businesses.

Home to global businesses

Manchester is one of the largest financial centres outside London, so you’ll have businesses like Deloitte and KPMG on your doorstep and plenty of opportunities to network with employers.

We also provide training courses for HMRC, BNY Mellon and PwC staff, so our teaching is current and relevant to industry professionals. We teach them in areas of tax, auditing and financial performance management.

Building your expertise

We’ll cover a whole host of areas including international financial reporting standards (IFRS), corporate reporting, governance and risk management. You’ll also apply tools and models of finance theory to understand current challenges.

Your dissertation will put your expertise to the test. It might involve working with an employer to investigate a business issue or answering a challenging research question.

Past students have explored nuclear companies, exchange rate fluctuations, and alignment between performance measurement and strategy.
