***Manchester Metropolitan University is currently undertaking a review of long-term academic provision on the Cheshire campus. The review will look at how we might re-focus the types of courses offered at Cheshire in the context of the wider University provision. A range of options is currently being considered. We can confirm that we are taking and processing applications for full time postgraduate courses and any part time courses of one year duration starting in 2017 on the Cheshire Campus. However, with regard to longer part time postgraduate courses, due to the ongoing review, the University will accept applications for courses delivered at Cheshire but will not process those applications until more is known in respect of the future of the campus.*** As a full time course, this programme is delivered during the day, but for part time students 2 study patterns are offered; afternoon/evening or evening only, although some units may not be available in both patterns. Depending on electives, some units may be available on a blended workshop basis. Developed to address the needs of a business environment chatacterised by change and increased complexity, this programme is designed to develop sophisticated managers with practical skills in strategic thinking and a deep understanding of the financial aspects of modern business. With a flexible, modular programme tailored to your needs, this course is ideal for people preparing to embark upon a career in management or those already working professionaly seeking a career change or to hone their financial management skills. By studying this internationally recognised award, you will develop a keen awareness of the most up-to-date financial management thinking and practice.
