Mode of Attendance: Full-time

This programme provides students with a strong scientific grounding in management science alongside optional specialist knowledge of business and management in Asian and Middle East and North African (MENA) regions. Students take courses in management and organisational theory, accounting, finance, managerial economics, marketing, corporate governance, research methods and international business strategy, together with specialist courses that draw on SOAS’s knowledge of management and finance in the Asian and MENA regions.  During their time at SOAS students have the opportunity to take approved courses from other SOAS departments, such as Law, Politics, Economics and Languages and Cultures, providing a rich inter-disciplinary learning environment.

The programme aims to provide students with a conceptual understanding of the core principles of management theory, its application to organisations and the ability to apply this knowledge to real issues facing businesses and other organisations. 

Graduates will have a firm grasp of management disciplines that should place them in a good position to pursue a career in business, banking, consulting, media and other industries. Students who attain a first or upper second will be well-placed to embark on postgraduate study. The Department of Financial and Management Studies (DeFiMS) maintains close links with employers in the United Kingdom, and its focus regions. We expect that many of our graduates will move into manufacturing, banking, consulting, media, and other industries.

A Student's Perspective

The Finance & Financial Law program was fantastic in its ability to blend the relevance of legal constructs with the more technical elements of finance, without sacrificing depth for breadth. This approach was especially useful for those of us who had had exposure to finance and law, but not both at the same time, or in such an integrated manner.
