Overview

Programme Code: 4G55

Start of programme: September

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

I would recommend the MSc Finance and Financial Law programme at SOAS for those who are interested in both finance and financial law while also wish to compare the differences between jurisdictions. The programme is perfect for those who would like to pursue a career in relation to the emerging economies in the future.
