About

Advance your career and earning potential with MSc in International Business and Finance at University of Aberdeen . The world’s economy is becoming increasingly global and individuals who understand the International context of business and finance are in demand.

Overview

International Business and Finance degree at University of Aberdeen is designed for graduates who do not come from a financial background, but would like to enter into the lucrative world of financial management, making themselves more marketable with broad knowledge of the practice of global business and finance.

Our MSc International Business and Finance has a distinctive focus on business and the financial world, providing an in-depth understanding of the relationships between general management and finance in an international setting. Students will benefit from our strengths in Business Management and in Finance, which have been taught to postgraduates at the University of Aberdeen Business School for over 20 years. We have long recognised that some students will want to be finance specialists and work in the banking industry for example, while others would prefer a broad general management programme to prepare them for the wider jobs market. That's why we have designed a programme for students who sit between these two distinctive paths and who want to enter general management with an edge in finance.

Students will not need a financial background, but being confident in numeracy will be advantageous. Our programme combines key elements of management with a core foundation in finance and students will be able to not only see how they would operate as managers, but also know that they can be confident in analysing business financial performance and making decisions in a broader context.

The combination of a research-led approach and a practical, professional focus, makes the prospect of studying our MSc International Business and Finance highly appealing for those seeking to develop their knowledge and analytical skills in not only management, but also finance-relevant fields. Our high quality programme develops skills valued by employers, including independent learning and research, analytical skills, group work, presentation skills, project work, computer skills and numeracy.

For someone who is already confident and competent with numbers, this programme will take these strengths and enable you to embed them in a financial context, combining a solid foundation in finance with a broad management understanding.

Careers

With many years of equipping students for the finance industry, it is clear that a combination of the academic and professional will put you in the best position to get the next job or to build your career. You will have a greater understanding of a company’s finances, funding strategies and governance in a financial setting without being narrowly trained in finance alone. You will have the advantage of having an edge over other general management graduates, as you will be able to understand financial objectives and the need for good financial planning.

Our programme will help to position you at the more quantitative end of a range of professions and will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to succeed in industries such as; accounting and professional services, investment banking, consultancy, supply chain management, corporate mergers and acquisitions and marketing.
