Master of Science in Financial Management
New program from Edinburgh Business School
As a busy and ambitious professional you may want the range of skills and expertise that Master program can provide, but do not have time to accommodate the schedule of a less flexible Master program. That is why English School of Business chose to become Approved Learning Partner of Edinburgh Business School, institution which created the world's second most popular long distance MBA program according to Financial Times.
The MSc in Financial Management is a new program which is targeted at finance professionals and other professionals who want to develop a career in finance, and who require a wide-ranging understanding of financial techniques and their application - but do not require high-level mathematical understanding of finance theories.
The MSc offers specialist study in the areas of corporate finance, investments and risk management. It will give students a relevant practical knowledge of finance that can be put into use straight away. The MSc will provide a strong preparation for a career in a wide variety of positions within the finance profession.
Passes are required in five core and four elective courses.
- Credit Risk Management
- Financial Risk Management
Specialist finance elective courses
- Corporate Governance
- Mergers and Acquisitions
- Practical History of Financial Markets
- Quantitative Methods
- Research Methods for Business and Management

Exams are taken in written form and last 3 hours, question papers come from EBS to British Council, which is responsible for the regularity of examination, and all works are evaluated by EBS. Diplomas and certificates are awarded by Heriot-Watt University.
