Whether you are already building your career or you’re just starting out, we want to make sure you’re ready to take on the future of an ever-evolving sector.
Our specialist masters course is led by academics from Manchester Metropolitan University’s triple accredited Business School (EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB) to give you the confidence and skills you need to manage the complexities of the global business, finance and accounting landscape.
Delivered 100% online from the City of Manchester, the UK’s second largest financial centre, you will explore the key topics and technologies that are changing the way we do business – from governance, risk and control to FinTech and more. Throughout, you’ll use real-world case studies that will harness your strategic thinking skills and put theory directly into relevant practice.
Plus, if you already have a professional finance qualification from a recognised institution, such as ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA or AAT, you could be exempt from up to four of the course’s nine modules.
And with the option to speed up your CIMA Professional Qualification by entering CIMA’s Masters Gateway route after you graduate, you’ll have everything you need to help your CV stand out.
Best of all, with flexibility at its heart, this part-time, online course will give you the freedom to balance study with your busy work or family life while you grow your global network.
