Advancing Your Career in Finance with Self-Improvement Skills

Making it in the fast-paced world of finance requires continued professional development, and that’s why it’s vital to acquire self-improvement skills. The University of Bolton’s MSc Accountancy and Financial Management course is designed to help you do just that, nurturing your existing talent while developing your ability to reflect on and improve your own practice.

If you want to take your career in finance to the next level, Postgraduate study could be the right path for you. With finance workers in demand and excellent salaries, there’s no better time to invest in your future with a master’s in Finance.

Boost your employability
Postgraduate study can support your career development, increasing job opportunities as well as earning power. In fact, a report by the Higher Education Policy Institute reveals that Postgraduates earn on average 18% more than first degree holders. As a student at Bolton University, you will also get the chance to future-proof your career by learning to assess your own performance, and this is done through awareness and self-reflection techniques.

As well as exploring the principles of financial management at an advanced level, you will get to enjoy one-to-one mentorship with our passionate tutors. They will work with you to establish goals and objectives, aligning modules to your personal development requirements.

Hone your leadership skills
Through self-reflection and self-improvement, our course can help you become a better leader, preparing you for a range of management positions. The programme is designed to give students broader leadership knowledge across accounting and finance for both private and public sector industries.

Some of the most important things you will learn include practical skills in financial reporting, corporate and social responsibility, business ethics, risk and business strategy, financial performance, and taxation/auditing. But what many of our finance graduates take away with them is their soft skill development, such as communication skills, teamwork and collaboration, adaptability, problem-solving, work ethic and interpersonal skills.
