Why study the MBA: Finance?

This course will develop your potential for progression to a management role with a Master's level understanding of the importance of finance in the area of business management. It uniquely offers a practically based management finance course at Master's level.

The course will also provide a strong foundation base for those who choose to continue on a professional development route and progress to professional accreditation in either finance or management.

You will use you finance knowledge within the MBA project teams, working with external companies. This enables a practical application of finance skills within a business management environment in substantial projects which are developed and managed over two terms.

Other modules give a broad over view of business management and include subjects such as Strategic Human Resource Management and specialist modules that will draw on general business principles through the lens of International corporate governance, advanced accounting and financial control.


What qualifications do I need to apply?

Candidates for entry to the MBA programme must normally possess:

          I.    UK/EU students will be able to enter the programme directly in accordance with University entry requirements for MA programmes (a first degree achieved at Class 2:2 or above from an approved University or Institution) or possess an equivalent qualification.

         II.    In addition to the qualifications above, non-UK/EU students whose first language is not English will be required to achieve IELTS 6 or above with no less than Band 6 in writing skills, or equivalents accepted by the University.



Where applicants do not meet the stated entry requirements above, the University APEL policy may be utilised for entry to the programme where necessary and appropriate. The programme may use this system to allow entry for post-experience professional who are over 21 years and who have been in management for at least 2 years. This is likely to involve a submission of evidence of professional competence (an assignment to the Head of Programme) and an interview as part of the recruitment process.
