Study type Taught


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 in Finance highly appealing for those who wish to advance their future career and learning potential.

This online MSc is founded on the considerable financial expertise within the Business School and on 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 to help to advance their career. The programme combines degree-level study with professional training, providing you with the opportunity to study towards the globally-recognised qualification CFA Levels 1 and 2 as part of the MSc. There are alternative routes for those who do not wish to do CFA or decide to do only level 1. The CFA exams open up the investment management professional world and combining this with an MSc Finance will provide you with all the tools you need for a successful career in financial management.

This programme will provide a thorough grounding in theoretical and practical aspects of finance, economics and investment for those who have already embarked on their finance career and those aspiring to enter a finance profession. The programme begins with the core disciplines underpinning finance and then builds on these, finishing with a project or dissertation as the capstone of your study and achievement. The programme takes approximately two years and two months to complete, dependent on your chosen start date and pathway.
