Finance and Strategy

Take your finance career further with a Global Online MSc Finance and Strategy from Manchester Metropolitan University and be empowered with the in-depth knowledge and skills you need to manage the complexities of the rapidly-evolving global business, finance and accounting landscape. Connecting you to new careers and a Global Online community across the world, you will also enjoy the flexibility to study wherever and whenever it suits you, with only a laptop and an internet connection.

You'll study in a Virtual Learning Environment that has been designed with the latest pedagogical research at its heart. It will encourage you to develop independent thought, reflect on your own work and engage with your fellow students across the globe. You will enjoy a programme of highly interactive live online seminars and presentations, have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of group tasks that are aimed at developing your transferable skills and receive personalised feedback from your tutors, all at a time that suits you best.

There are three intakes annually for this course, with programmes starting in January, May and September.

**Features and benefits**
- Research focused, practically minded: Exploring topics that are grounded in the latest research, ranging from performance management to corporate governance and risk, you will also gain an in-depth knowledge of the financial technology that is shaping the global business landscape. With practicality at its heart, you will have the opportunity to tailor your learning to your current role, helping you to increase your profile and performance at work, whilst you study.

- Accelerate your master's: If you already have a professional finance qualification from a recognised institution, such as ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA or AAT, you could be exempt from four modules of the programme, leaving you to focus on the research and dissertation elements of the master's course.

- Speed up your CIMA qualification: As a Manchester Met masters graduate, you are eligible for an accelerated entry route to the CIMA Professional Qualification, called the Master's Gateway route. The Master's Gateway route will allow you to progress to the strategic level of the CIMA Professional Qualification upon the completion of one exam, bypassing 11 other modules.

- Study your way: From an easy application process, the opportunity to begin your studies at three different entry points in the year and the choice to pay per unit that you study, we're here to do everything we can to help you achieve your goals without taking a career break. Our Virtual Learning Environment has been expertly designed to help you study when and where it suits you best.

- Grow your worldwide professional network: Whether it's through our optional annual Executive Conference or live online seminars with tutors and peers, you will regularly collaborate with other students around the globe, making invaluable industry connections that can open doors now or in the future.

- Be supported every step of the way: We pride ourselves on our students' study experience. As an MSc Finance and Strategy student, you will be assigned a dedicated Student Success Advisor. They'll be there to cheer you on from the sidelines and help you to get the most from your time with us.
