  • Course description
    Introduction

    The Government’s focus on providing more health care services through a mixture of both public and private sector providers is changing the face of service provision and of financial management within the health care sector.

    This new fast track route to an MSc Financial Management (Health Sector) course is designed for qualified practitioners, working in the health sector, keen to continue their professional development. The course aims to deepen and broaden practitioners’ knowledge and skills through analysis of aspects of financial strategy and accounting, and by building on this with a specialist module in Financial Management and Governance in the Health Sector.

    Content
    As a qualified accountant you are likely to be exempt from studying most of the taught 'substantive' modules of the full-time MSc Financial Management (LINK) programme. This fast track route therefore only requires you to complete 90 credits by taking the following modules:

    -Financial Context and Contemporary Issues
    -Financial Management and Governance in the Health Sector
    -Research Methods
    -Dissertation

    The modules will, in total, involve around 70 hours at the Business School, on Saturdays and evening sessions during the week from September to April.

    From April you will concentrate on your dissertation, which is normally between 12,000 and 15,000 words; ideally this should address a practical problem from your workplace. You'll develop your theme with the guidance and support of a supervisor and you should aim to submit your dissertation in the autumn.

    Teaching and learning
    You'll be studying in a dynamic and innovative teaching and learning environment. Your study will combine lectures, seminars, student presentations and workshops. The modern integrative methods create an environment that is enjoyable, varied and hugely effective.

    Entry requirements
    You will be a professionally qualified accountant with CIMA, ACCA, ICAEW or equivalent and have at least 12 months’ experience of working in the health sector.

    All entry decisions are subject to the discretion of the programme director.
