By the end of your studies, you’ll be well-equipped to fulfil a variety of financial roles, both in private and public sector organisations.

Our MSc Finance covers a broad range of stimulating topics, including financial derivatives, investment management, asset valuation, financial econometrics and corporate finance. You’ll learn to appreciate the complex environment organisations operate within as well as how this can impact businesses financially. We’ll help you to develop a critical awareness and understanding of contemporary issues and theories relating to investments, financial instruments and corporate finance.

This programme has a strong practical element. You’ll gain hands-on experience working with real-time financial, accounting and economic data, thanks to our dedicated trading room facility and industry leading software. Your exposure to these practical tools and techniques will give you the confidence and technical capability to gain a competitive advantage over other graduates in the job market.

You’ll enhance your quantitative skills throughout the course. We teach you how to apply appropriate mathematical and statistical tools to aid financial decision-making. You’ll also develop a wide range of transferable skills which will help to further enhance your employability. Thanks to the diverse background of our students, you’ll work alongside people from across the world. This will develop your communication, teamwork, organisation and management skills in a multicultural context. These are highly regarded competences for graduate employers.

This course will develop your knowledge of finance theory with practical applications and research tools. During the summer term you will also have the opportunity to attend a workshop designed to help students taking the CFA® (Chartered Financial Analyst) Level I examination.

You can choose to study this course as part of our double degree programme.
