The purpose of the BCom Hons in Financial Management is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to undertake highly-skilled professional work in the disciplines of management accounting and finance. The program is comprised of a broad-based curriculum to prepare the postgraduate student for a wide range of finance-related specialties. The program emphasizes application, analysis, and evaluation within each topic area as well as the application of integrity and ethics in a professional environment. Mastering the curriculum will provide students with the skills to synthesize complex management, financial, performance, and risk principles in order to drive and add value to the entities that employ them. The successful student will gain an overall financial and business perspective which will provide them with a competitive advantage for employment. In addition, the student will be prepared for further studies in the field by developing research and reporting skills through the completion of a supervised research project in the field of financial management.

The qualification is aligned with the competency framework and curriculum requirements of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Students who complete the BCom Hons (Financial Management) will be prepared to write the CIMA professional qualification exams that lead to an Associate Chartered Management Accountant / Chartered General Management Accountant (ACMA/CGMA) designation.
