Summary

Whether you are already building your career in finance, or you’re just starting out, we want to make sure you’re ready to take on the future of an ever-evolving sector.

Our specialist masters course is led by academics from Manchester Metropolitan University’s triple accredited Business School (EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB) to give you the confidence and skills you need to manage the complexities of the global business, finance and accounting landscape.

Delivered 100% online from the City of Manchester, the UK’s second largest financial centre*, you will explore the key topics and technologies that are changing the way we do business – from governance, risk and control to FinTech and more. Throughout, you’ll use real-world case studies that will harness your strategic thinking skills and put theory directly into relevant practice.

There are six intakes annually for this course, with programmes starting in January, March, May, July, September and November.

With practicality at its heart, you will have the opportunity to tailor your learning to your current role, helping you to increase your profile and performance at work, whilst you study.
