Program Description

MBA in Finance

Nottingham University Business School

Underpinned by the core MBA modules, our Finance course reflects the Business School’s research strengths in finance and financial services.

If you want to pursue a career in financial management, or are currently working in finance, then this is the MBA for you.

An introductory Finance and Accounting module teaches the underlying principles of company accounts and all financial decision making.

In the second semester you can combine Corporate Finance, International Finance, Financial & Monetary Economics and Portfolio Management & Investment Analysis giving you the best foundation for a career in finance.

The course also gives you a techincal understanding of financial management which is necessary if you are to manage a team of experts. The ability to ask the right questions and understand the answers are the skills good financial managers possess, and not necessarily the ability to solve complex mathematical equations.

All modules have an ethical dimension; financial management and investment problems are never simply technical problems.
