Our MSc Finance is an applied, broad-based master’s degree that is CIMA accredited and designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to work in a wide range of financial roles.
The programme is best suited to those who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the whole field of finance before choosing their preferred area of specialisation - our optional modules will allow you to tailor your degree to fit your career aspirations. You will learn both how to evaluate financial issues and to improve the practice of finance.
Our master’s in Finance shares a common taught first semester with the MSc Corporate Finance and MSc Finance and Investment programmes. In semesters two and three you will then choose from a wide range of modular options, including those in corporate finance, investment and international finance.
Within corporate finance, you will gain a deeper understanding of topics such as cost of capital and dividend policy, as well as investment topics such as asset pricing and portfolio selection. You will also have the opportunity to explore international finance by selecting optional modules in international financial management, global financial markets and/or global investment analysis.
You will be taught by internationally renowned academics who are able to bring fresh insights into their teaching, both from their research and from their advisory roles on government policy and in industry. Our research strengths include financial markets, corporate finance, accounting and investments. Teaching on the programme is academically rigorous and you will benefit from the strong emphasis on practical relevance.
Our trading room, which incorporates Thomson-Reuters Eikon financial trading software, is integrated into the programme and will provide the platform for many of the computer lab sessions, enabling you to practically apply concepts you have learned during throughout the master’s. Currently students have access to the Trading Room in the evenings and at weekends. There is also the option to work independently towards a certificate of competency in Eikon, which is awarded by Thomson-Reuters.
