Finance and Investment Management is a major growth area. Finance graduates are in high demand worldwide and careers with a top finance qualification are diverse and often lucrative. The combination of academic challenge and professional focus makes the prospect of studying our MSc Finance and Investment Management highly appealing for those that wish to advance their future career and earning potential.
This well-established MSc is founded on years of financial and investment expertise within the department, and on some powerful global connections with the financial sector. We focus not only on academic success but on helping students to build the broad range of specialist skills and experience that contribute to employability.
The programme runs in parallel with the globally-recognised qualification CFA Level 1, so you have the opportunity to take this leading professional qualification as part of the MSc with 6 weeks dedicated study to maximise your chances of successful completion. CFA Level 1 will open up the investment management world in more depth and set a base for what you need to know at the beginning of your career as an investment professional. You will add allure to your CV with this upgrade, plus have fewer exams to take whilst working.
