Warwick Business School will launch an Executive MBA program with a specialization in Finance. The new EMBA will be taught at Warwick's London campus in the Shard as well as on the school's home campus.
The new program has been specifically designed to appeal to executives who want to develop their leadership skills as well as their understanding of finance. "Many senior staff who are not finance professionals need a working understanding if they are to be active contributors and this course is designed for them to really get to grips with these crucial financial issues," according to John Colley, associate dean for the MBA at Warwick.
The program's core modules will be shared with Warwick's general EMBA program. These modules will be followed by three specialized finance or investment modules.
The specialized finance modules cover topics ranking from corporate finance to financial analysis and investment and risk management.
Students doing the EMBA in London can complete the program in two years; those doing it in Warwick can finish in three years.
Warwick opened its Shard campus in 2015. In October the school announced that it would be offering a DBA program for senior executives in its London location.
The new EMBA in Finance will launch in September 2016 in London and in Warwick in October 2016. For more information, please see Warwick's EMBA with a specialization in finance program webpage.
