This two-year course develops broad business and management skills while also offering a specialist pathway in finance.
The first year is the same as MSc Business with Management. You’ll then undertake a second year that develops the ‘Finance’ pathway. Specialist modules will cover topics like corporate financial management and international financial markets and institutions.
You’ll develop your research skills through a master’s dissertation or an investigative consultancy project related to an issue faced by a real client. You’ll also explore contemporary issues in management research.
There is no requirement to have studied business, management or finance at undergraduate level.
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. Your knowledge and skills, including your specialisms in management and finance, will help you turn good businesses into great ones.
Some employers require completion of a two-year master’s and this course will meet their requirement.
If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
