Financial Strategy, Valuation, Governance and Ethics (B859)
The finance manager in modern organisations in addition to financing decisions is also required to undertake investment decisions. This module provides theoretical and analytical knowledge required in making financial policy decisions on what projects and other business activities a firm should invest finance in. Issues of corporate governance, ethics and disclosure of information are explored, and the emerging field of Islamic finance is introduced by tracing its origins, scope and implications for financial decisions in a global economy.
This is the 2nd module in the Open University Business School MSc in Finance and therefore students must hold a BA/BSc degree awarded by a recognised university, or equivalent. Various higher education and professional qualifications are considered equivalent to a degree. The Open University Business School Masters Programme Committee is responsible for judging whether applicants' qualifications meet the requirements for admission. Students also need an appropriate facility in English language, sufficient to be able to work effectively at postgraduate level; generally this means capability equivalent to an International English Language Test System (IELTS) score of 6.5. It is strongly recommended that students are comfortable with the use of numerical methods and use of spreadsheets.
