MA Global Management - pathway in Finance & Business Development MA

Regent's University London

The MA Global Management with pathways offers an enhanced study of global organisations, their management and the changing external context in which they operate.

We aim to prepare you to be a more effective global manager, leader and citizen.

The Finance & Business Development pathway will develop your appreciation of the complexity of the global economy, financial strategy and the risks organisations are exposed to, and how they attempt to mitigate and manage these risks.

It will provide you with an understanding of the underlying concepts of accounting and finance, a critical overview of the regulatory framework, and an appreciation of the application of these techniques in a managerial context.

Why should I choose this programme?

Organisations which operate globally are exposed to a wide range of economic and financial risks, trading and investing globally.

This course will give you the understanding of global financial markets, appreciation of global corporate finance challenges and ability to formulate possible solutions that you need to succeed in the complex global economy.
