MBA Finance

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is the most coveted and internationally recognised postgraduate management degree in the world, and there's a good reason why. It is widely recognised as a passport to a successful management career, enabling managers with a functionalist role to take on a more senior, strategic position and empowering senior managers to gain the in-depth, strategic knowledge they need to climb even higher. Our outstanding MBA Finance course offers you a life-changing opportunity to realise your full potential and specialise at an advanced level.

You will develop a critical understanding of the theoretical techniques, concepts and methods employed in financial and risk management. You will be exposed to different frameworks designed for the implementation of financial models. Emphasis will be placed on practical applications in various contexts with which finance professionals will be familiar and expected to be competent. Through real life case studies you will highlight limitations and strengths of financial models in terms of behavioural and technical pitfalls.

Delivered in a world-class learning environment, by internationally acclaimed academics and business leaders, the course integrates theory and practice to bring you hands-on experience, inspiring teaching and a clear international perspective. Here at Nottingham Business School, we are proud to have developed an innovative and rigorous MBA with opportunities to personalise your learning around your ambitions.
