The Online MA in Finance programme offers a strategic perspective on finance and investment management. Developed in conjunction with our corporate partners, this postgraduate degree closely reflects the real-world economic environment and focuses on the applied skills that modern employers are looking for.
The Online MA in Finance programme is made up of two parts:
- 3 core modules and 3 elective modules (15 ECTS credits each)
- Integrative Research and Consultancy Project (30 ECTS credits)
After your successful application and payment process, you will gain an access to the InterActive platform and its substantial learning tools. Your studies will progress according to the timetable of your intake and the syllabus of the courses included in your programme. You will begin your studies of either one or two modules simultaneously, at a defined date during the intake period.
For the study of the core and elective modules you can choose an accelerated mode of study (completion of the whole programme between 12 – 15 months) or the standard mode (completion between 1 and 5 years). The accelerated mode will involve 8 weeks of study of each module with the formative assessment in the last week of 8. Alternatively, the standard mode of study will be accomplished over 12 weeks for each module with the formative assessment in the last week.
After finishing the core and elective modules, you will move on to the Integrative Research and Consultancy Project. This will take 20 weeks with a number of Formative Assessments throughout. The research proposal will be concluded the 5th week and will count as 20% of the final mark. The dissertation (80% of final mark) will be completed the end of the 20 weeks in conjunction with a senior member of the academic staff, who will act as your supervisor and provide guidance throughout the project.
