Our Training in Strategic Management both Financial and Corporate Governance is designed to equip professionals with the necessary knowledge and skills to embark on various business-related career alternatives. It offers management for those finance and account managers who already have some accounting and/or finance background, and is suited to those participants wishing to pursue careers as management accountants or management consultants within business organisations.

Tomorrow's management accountants and management consultants will be at the hub of both day-to-day and strategic organisational life - as dynamic partners to other business managers, and as leaders of change management projects, systems design, strategy formulation and much more.

In addition, the programme also caters for non-specialists who wish to pursue a more general business/managerial career, but with increased financial and commercial astuteness.

As leading-edge research suggests, a broad knowledge of strategic management issues will, in the future, be essential in all medium and large organisations. Financial and non-financial management is no longer only for accountants, but is an important requirement amongst managers across all business functions. This programme offers participants with an excellent platform, post-graduation, to enter the fast-changing worlds of management accountants, management consultants and global business managers.

Our course:

  • is informed by the latest, and leading-edge, research in the relevant discipline areas,
  • provides leading-edge insight into the roles and skills requirements for tomorrow's management accountants, consultants and global business managers,
  • contains an infusion of organisational case studies relating to (changing) financial management and management accounting practice, incorporating group discussions and presentations,
  • Features professionalism and employability.

Aims of the Programme

It tackles subject areas that go beyond just financial analysis per se and encapsulates many other important aspects of the remit of today's management accountants, management consultants and business managers – which could include (but is by no means restricted to) strategy, change management, international financial reporting, corporate governance, corporate responsibility, accounting in developing countries.
