About This Course

This is an intense and challenging course and you can expect to develop a great deal over your year with us. You will discover the intellectual and practical skills required for a successful career. You’ll also be challenged to become an independent thinker capable of questioning conventional wisdom and pushing boundaries. The course is applied in nature and highly practical.

You will study the international market, learning the latest practices and studying the latest trends. You’ll discover how to combine theory and practice, how to draw on different data sets and databases, and how analyse and compare data in order to make effective financial decisions. You’ll explore the new challenges facing corporations are today, analysing solutions and proposing answers of your own. And you’ll learn how to make the best use of new technologies. Increasingly employers are looking for candidates with investment and financial management expertise, including environmental and social expertise. On this course you will learn to ask questions such as: How can corporations contribute to the youth of a country? And how can companies grow without sacrificing the environment? You’ll explore the impact of social and environmental issues on the future of corporations. You’ll learn how to look beyond profit as a key motivator in business. And you’ll cultivate the skills required to work with corporations that care about social and environmental concerns.

Throughout the course you’ll approach your subject from an international perspective. This international focus means you can take insights from one region and apply them to another. For example, you could take insights from a British case study and apply to a Chinese business, and vice versa. You’ll also learn first-hand how to thrive in an international environment, by working alongside students from all over the world, including the EU, Asia, Africa and America.

As you progress you will be encouraged to change the way you think and approach problems. You’ll discover how to look at issues from different points of view. And you’ll graduate as an independent thinker able to come up with your own ideas and debate and defend them.

In addition to your Master’s qualification, you’ll have the chance to gain valuable professional qualifications from Thomson Reuters at no extra cost, including Eikon and Datastream. You’ll be able to apply for scholarships to the FRM Part 1 exam, the CISI Introduction to Securities & Investment L3 exam, and the CFA exam every year. You will also be offered an academic rate to study for CII qualifications such as the CII R02 Investment Principles and Risk exam based upon your interest.
