MSc Management for Business Excellence (MBE) “ The Leadership and Excellence module was a real eye-opener, and it taught me how to lead and support people to deliver the results that a business needs. The course also made a huge difference to the way I think. It helped me to see issues from a broader perspective – and how to be a critical thinker. I learned how to question things and explore new approaches, based on a foundation of knowledge and understanding. Even now, four years on from finishing my MSc, I still put all of these things into practice every day. “ Core Modules Financial Analysis and Control Systems This module provides an understanding of the main accounting statements together with an awareness of basic accounting principles, terminology and techniques which will enable you to interpret financial reports and information.
