New courses at the University of Salford Business School

The University of Salford is launching a suite of brand new post-graduate courses to ensure their offer is cutting edge and continues to provide students with the skills they need to take the next step in their careers. Among them is a course aimed at combating emerging forms of financial fraud.

MSc Fraud and Risk Management
This course aims to train students to spot the latest forms of financial fraud, and to assess their risk, to prepare them for a career in the financial services. International finance expert Ghulam Sorwar, Professor in Finance at Salford, has helped to design the new course. Ghulam commented “Fraud is becoming more complex all the time, and we have seen with things like the Carillion situation that this can impact on many lives and reverberate throughout society. “In recent years the nature of fraud has changed and the impact of information technology means that there are now opportunities to commit fraud that did not exist in the past. We will teach students about these using theoretical problems but we will also use real world case studies to look at the limitations of these theories.”

The exciting new programme aims to fill a gap where professional financial fraud is examined from different viewpoints including financial fraud, accounting fraud and banking fraud. It will provide students with an understanding of what motivates fraud and how to detect it. This course will prepare students to spot the latest fraud techniques, such as accounting fraud, IT issues and security issues.

New Master’s programmes for September
As well as MSc Fraud and Risk Management, the Business School is launching other new Master’s programmes for this September:

MSc Professional Accounting
MSc International Human Resource Management and Development
MSc Finance and Investment Management
MSc Operations Management
MSc Digital Business
LLM Health Safety and Industrial Law

Dean of the Business School at the University of Salford, Professor David Spicer, said: “I’m excited to be introducing all these new courses. They will ensure that our portfolio of options for post graduate taught students is fully up to date and they can be confident that when they come to Salford they get an education which will prepare them for all the challenges of the modern business world, putting them in a great place to boost their career or even launch a new one.”

The launch of these new programmes sits alongside the postgraduate programme review that the Business School has completed, working with employers and current students to create the most industry-relevant business school. As well as being academically challenging, the programmes also focus on being:
• Industry informed: industry partners work with academics to co-create and deliver programmes to ensure that students’ learning is relevant, real-world and experiential.
• Digitally enabled: digital is now an integral part of all business, be it mobile banking in the finance sector, digital fluency in human resource management and development or the application of big data for supply chain management.
• Global in outlook: with students and academics from all parts of the world, the programmes have an international focus through live briefs and case studies from global organisations.
• Ethically sound: in all programmes, students are taught ethical and sustainable business practices.

The next intake for students is September 2018 but there are several entry points through the academic year, so students can choose the start time that works best for them.
