A twelve-month course leading to the MSc in Corporate Finance & Corporate Governance.
A good honours degree or equivalent from a recognised university or college or a completed professional qualification obtained by examination and considered to be equivalent to a degree. Applicants whose first language is not English, and who do not have a recognised degree or equivalent qualification taught and examined in English, are required to provide evidence of their competence in written and spoken English, normally through IELTS (6.5 or higher) or TOEFL (550+) or GCE Ordinary Level (Grade C or better). Students below this standard can be provided with individually-designed English language courses on campus and must achieve the required test scores prior to registration for the MSc programme. The MSc in Corporate Finance & Corporate Governance focuses on the execution of:
(a) Corporate Finance – The Corporate Finance program is designed to help students recognise, understand, and attain those skills associated with success in the world of finance. Its focus is the financial decisions that must be made in every organisation. These include investment decisions about purchase of real assets, financial decisions about how to raise the cash necessary to fund investments, operational decisions about implementation of routine procedures for day to day management of financial aspects of the organization, and planning decisions regarding changes in the mix of services or products offered, mergers or international operations. While a financial manager would specialize in these types of decisions, a wide range of managers in an organization may contribute to these decisions.
(b) Corporate Governance – The Corporate Governance program is designed to prepare students to critically evaluate the legal duties of directors and the board and considers essential differences between the directors, managers and owners of a business. Specific learning outcomes include an understanding of the following: the knowledge and skills to promote corporate responsibility and fairness, transparency and accountability, the new codes of governance including a range of contemporary and pervasive business and management issues including international corporate governance, change leadership, corporate governance and the law.
Graduation Requirements – Students studying towards the MSc in Corporate Finance & Corporate Governance are required to take a minimum of 90 ECTS. Sixty four (64) ECTS must come from core subjects, sixteen (16) from electives and ten (10) ECTS from dissertation.
