Study type Taught


The course is divided into three 15 week semesters. In the first two semesters, contact time averages about 15 hours a week for the first ten to twelve weeks, leaving the last three to five weeks for examinations. The third semester is given over to the Managerial Reports Module, which involves 12 hours of workshops and then ongoing contact time with your tutor as you prepare a substantial piece of work (up to 14,000 words) on a real-world business and management topic.
Some of our Master’s students already have some business experience; some are coming straight from their first degree. Some are already committed to a career in Management and/or Finance; some are thinking of continuing to work in an academic context. Whatever your own previous experience or future aspiration, you will be given, in the first Semester, an all-round grounding in the essentials of Business and Management, based on the most up-to-date understanding of management theory and good practice.
The second Semester then focuses more directly on the specialist areas of Financial Markets and Investment and Corporate Financial Management. These are the white hot topics of the moment in the business world. Studying them will equip you for career opportunities either working directly in the Financial Sector or in business areas where a sophisticated understanding of the workings of finance is essential.
You will benefit from an outstanding variety of in-class and outside learning environments. In-class activities include lectures, seminars, workshops, guest speakers and career development activities. Outside activities include managerial field trips, case study visits, managerial reporting and liaison with professionals in business and industry.
