Understanding finance is often seen as one of the most challenging parts of managing a business effectively. Our business and finance postgraduate pathway allows you to gain an understanding of key financial management and economics topics, while improving your managerial and strategic skills.
The course focuses on modules such as financial decision making, business strategy and financial management. Alongside gaining specific financial knowledge, you’ll also have plenty of opportunity to develop the other skills that are useful when operating in the modern business environment: innovation, communication, critical evaluation, and many others.
Alongside the core modules in management and finance, you are able to tailor the course to your interests and career aspirations through optional modules that look into:
- theories of leadership and how they apply in practice
- the key concepts that underlie marketing and how to develop a strategy
- human resource management and its distinction from personnel approaches
Your course will finish with the completion of a research report on an area of business, finance or management of your choice. Once you have chosen the issue you want to look into, you will gather primary evidence and make commercial recommendations based on your analysis of the data.
If you are interested in business and looking to focus on a specific area, take a look at our masters degrees that combine business with management, human resources, marketing or project management, or even our world-class MBA.
