MSc in Financial Management
The MSc has been designed to give financial professionals the ability to make a crucial contribution where it matters most in business: at the bottom line.

It provides a wide-ranging understanding of financial techniques and their application – but does not require a high-level mathematical understanding of finance theories. You will engage in a specialist study of the key areas of: corporate finance; mergers; investments; derivatives; credit risk; and risk management. The knowledge you gain can be applied in very real, practical ways.

Careers in the sector depend upon a strong understanding of the foundations and dynamic nature of finance and the vagaries of investment behaviour. The MSc will give you that, preparing the way for a career in a wide variety of positions within the finance profession.

MSc in Marketing
This intellectually challenging programme will help to create the marketing leaders of tomorrow. It will allow you to solve real problems and make the kind of informed decisions that can transform the marketing of your organisation.

This MSc is aimed at individuals who want to develop a career in marketing but require an applied and wide-ranging grounding rather than a theoretical perspective. The programme will appeal to graduates in non-business subjects who wish to develop a career in marketing and individuals who have business-related work experience and now wish to move into marketing, or upgrade their skills and decision-making capability in the discipline.

Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)
Our Doctorate in Business Administration is designed for executives who want to apply research-based thinking to business issues.

While broadly equivalent to a PhD, our DBA has a more direct relevancy to the needs of the real business world; it will enable you to use research methods to define, implement and evaluate issues facing your organisation.

Currently, the programme has high-calibre students from all over the world. From a diverse range of backgrounds, they include senior police commanders in Asia, company CEOs in Canada, senior academics in Ireland and postdoctoral researchers in Vietnam.

The programme:
  • builds on the internationally successful MBA and MSc programmes, utilising established distance-learning-based delivery and support systems.
  • produces applied research professionals – people who are able to analyse complex business issues and develop original and reliable solutions.
  • generates understanding of synergies and insights that can only be developed by integrating different disciplines within the context of original research.
