On this course, you'll obtain a thorough grounding in the subject as well as an appreciation of the roles of finance managers in organisations and in society. There is also a strong emphasis on the development of personal managerial skills and the application of the analytical and spreadsheet skills needed by contemporary financial managers. The degree will develop your ability to understand and evaluate financial information and will enable you to add significant value to your organisation at a senior management level. This course is designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of financial management and build on your research and analytical skills. It is an ideal course if you have recently completed a first degree in Accounting or Finance, or if you have a related degree and substantial business experience.
