We offer taught postgraduate programmes in Accounting, Banking, Finance, Business Management, European Studies, Translating and Interpreting (European languages, Arabic and Chinese), Strategic Project Planning and Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Graduate education is regarded as an essential component of a research culture and at the more advanced levels, results and findings from research being undertaken in our specialist research centres feed through into our MSc teaching, providing an invaluable synergy.
