Are you impatient to master finance and management in just one year?

Our MSc Finance and Management has been uniquely designed to train you in high-level finance and management principles to meet the growing demand for skilled professionals in these areas. The programme is perfect if you do not have a first degree in business or finance, or relevant work experience but are seeking to make a career change into finance and management. You’ll become business ready to work in finance or management roles whatever your background or take your career to the next level as a finance or management professional.

If you’re looking for a career that combines management success and creativity with an understanding of the financial world, then MSc Finance and Management is for you. You will study Principles of Finance in term one, which will provide you with the maths skills and core concepts in finance you need to succeed on the course and to apply in the workplace in your first finance role.

You’ll then proceed to develop a deeper understanding of these finance principles alongside a management knowledge base that is both theoretical and practical, allowing you to also develop expertise in management. This will prepare you to face the challenges of working in complex economic, social, political and cultural conditions. By developing a diverse range of financial and management skills, you can graduate as an extremely attractive candidate to employers in a range of organisations.

By combining finance and management you can effect change for the better. At Essex, we encourage you to explore ethical finance and responsible management and to become sustainable finance practitioners in a turbulent economic environment.

Topics include:

  • management and business strategy

  • managing across culture

  • principles of finance

  • corporate finance
