MSc Accounting, Governance and Financial Management

If you’re more interested in financial management than markets, this is the masters you’ve been looking for. You don’t need an undergraduate degree in finance or another business subject. You must be ambitious and have a high level of discursive skills. And you have to believe in a sustainable and ethical financial future.

Like all our masters, this programme will combine rigorous academic work with practical experience. Through seminars, group work, real-life case studies and a dissertation, you’ll develop the skills, and the judgement, to practice financial management in any sector.
