Course summary

Course description

The MSc in Finance will develop your understanding of the concepts of finance and the role of financial management in a variety of organisations and sectors, and is approved by the Chartered Financial Analysis Institute. This provides you with a foundation for a career in the finance industry or a finance-related role more broadly such as in business, government or major international organisations.

You will gain a greater understanding of how finance is central to organisational decision-making by looking at key areas including financial analysis and investment, financial statements, strategic financial management, financial modelling and financial risk management and corporate finance. You will be able to pursue your own areas of interest when taking your option modules and dissertation.

As well as gaining a deeper theoretical and conceptual knowledge of finance, this degree will develop your ability to analyse and evaluate financial management problems and make sound strategic decisions in your professional role. The skills and knowledge gained during the course will enable you to enhance your career in finance or move into further study and academic work in the area.

By choosing to study by distance learning, you will have the flexibility to fit your study around existing commitments and enhance your career prospects without having to leave employment.

Assessment

You will be assessed at the end of each module either by an exam or written assignment which is usually between 3,000 to 4,000 words. Your final piece of work, the dissertation, is 15,000 words.
