The MSc Finance and Management provides a good foundation in finance together with an overview of management functions within an organisation. It is an ideal qualification for anyone wanting to start or progress their career in the finance function of an organisation and then move into general management later. It is relevant to working in small business where the ability to control finances is essential, within the finance function of large business organisations, and also in public sector organisations.
The programme offers a choice of the full range of options in both finance and management; it is possible to tailor this programme to match your career goals.
You can study the programme in an intensive nine-month format, or over 12 months. With both formats you will gain a firm foundation in financial management, investment decisions and research skills in finance, as well as an introduction to the main ideas and functions of international business and marketing. If studying over nine months you will then study corporate finance, strategy, plus four additional options in the second term. You can select a short investment analysis project as one of the options.
With the 12 month format you can choose either the Investment Analysis Project (30 credits) or the dissertation (45 credits) plus up to four optional modules*.
In addition, intensive computer training covering Thomson Reuters Datastream and other financial database software systems is incorporated into relevant modules.
*Students must select at least two Management modules. In addition, students choosing to complete the dissertation must complete BEAM038 (Investment Analysis II).
“Studying a Masters in Finance and Management gives me the flexibility either to work within their finance department or to work in a management position. Either way I am looking forward to sharing what I have learnt at Exeter and taking my career forward.”
