The MSc Business with Financial Management with Advanced Practice programme will give students both the general business knowledge and understanding as well as the personal skills needed for a wide variety of roles. The Advanced Practice element of this programme enables you to extend your studies to include an internship or applied group consultancy project, providing you with an excellent opportunity to develop your business skills and further enhance your employability.
This programme is run as part of our Newcastle Business School, part of a select group of business schools worldwide, following accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting – the first in Europe to gain the double accreditation. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, Masters, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
This option offers the opportunity to spend three months gaining all-important work experience and employability skills in a professional work setting. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. Support is provided to help source opportunities and to perfect the applicant CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position.
If you do not currently meet the entry requirements to study one of our Masters programmes, the Graduate Certificate in Business is designed to help you gain the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to successfully transition to Masters-level study.
Upon successfully completing the course and subject to specific requirements, you will be able to join one of our range of Masters programmes with a detailed understanding of how business works.
