You also learn the latest econometrics and numerical analysis skills important in the marketplace.

Birkbeck's postgraduate finance courses are built around our long-running experience in research-led evening teaching. Many of our students work in the finance industry, which generates a lively atmosphere in class and ensures that you'll be studying alongside committed, enthusiastic students with a wealth of experience. You will be taught by active researchers, working at the cutting-edge in their respective fields, who are also experienced professional practitioners, giving specialist advice and in-house training to government departments and banks and firms in the City of London. This Master's degree in banking and finance is challenging and demanding, so you should demonstrate strong intellectual ability in your application and be willing to work hard.

If you have no prior knowledge in finance, economics or a related field, then our MSc Finance may be more suitable.
