Course description

The Manchester Global MBA (Finance) is highly flexible and portable, meets the needs of busy executives and fits around your personal and professional commitments. Our proven blend of robust academic theory and practical, hands-on experience means you can start putting your learning into practice from day one, providing immediate benefits for you and/or your employer without putting your career on hold.

Whether you are a manager looking to strengthen your finance skills, or a professional wanting to enter or progress in the finance sector, this learning pathway will broaden your knowledge of management practice and sharpen your understanding of 21st century global business.If you already hold professional finance qualifications such as ACA, ACCA, CIMA, ICA, CIPFA and ACIS, you can take an accelerated route, missing out three of the core finance modules and focusing on the general management disciplines that will really enhance your career.

Open days
