Journal of Business and Finance is an open access international journal. Effective leadership requires more than first-class business acumen. It also requires a degree of self-awareness and sensitivity. Henley is renowned for its well-researched, professional approach to this aspect of business education and all our postgraduate programmes examine this aspect of leadership – helping to create emotionally intelligent graduates who can be fully effective in their chosen careers.
The globalisation of business has led to a gradual move in the UK away from domestic generally accepted accounting practices (GAAP) to international rules. The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) is emerging as the generally accepted regulator of the international rules. The module will provide students with a detailed understanding of the underlying reasons for the harmonization of accounting standards internationally. Furthermore, students will learn how to prepare a range of financial statements that comply with IASB international financial reporting standards (IFRS).
The economic uncertainties of today’s world make it imperative for non-financial managers to have a firm grasp of the financial consequences of business decisions. With volatility in financial markets and margins narrowing from highly competitive trading conditions, mid- to senior-level executives need to be aware of how investment and funding decisions can affect the value of an organisation.

You may be called for an interview to help the School of Study, and you, understand if the course is the right choice for you. The interview will cover topics such as your current studies, reasons for choosing the course and your personal interests and extra-curricular activities. Where an interview is required the Admissions Service will contact you directly to arrange a convenient time.
