If you’re more interested in financial management than markets and want to contribute to a sustainable financial future, this is the masters you’ve been looking for. This programme will explore the financial management of a range of organisations.

You don’t need a background in finance but you must be ambitious and keen to expand your knowledge through rigorous discussion and learning.

This programme will combine rigorous academic work with practical experience. Through seminars, group work, real-life case studies and a dissertation, you’ll develop the skills – and the judgement – to practice financial management in any sector.

The special emphasis on governance means that this masters is ideal if you want to be a financial manager in an organisation or if you want to go into financial services, as an auditor for example.
