Summary

Gain a comprehensive framework of knowledge, insight and vision regarding the key issues in finance and investment banking. The MSc in Finance (Finance, investment and Risk) pathway develops your cognitive, critical, intellectual and research skills, plus relevant personal and interpersonal skills to interact in the real world of business and organisations.

In today’s competitive global environment, employers are increasingly selective in their search for competent business and finance professionals. Our Master’s in Finance programmes equip you with a solid background in financial principles and practices and help to cultivate your practical finance skills and real-world business knowledge.

This pathway has been specially designed to develop your practical finance skills and give you real-world business knowledge. It prepares you for a career in investment banks, financial and management consultancies, auditing firms, risk management departments of financial institutions and government departments.

You gain a sound understanding of the theories that underpin modern techniques in investment and risk management. The application of the theories is demonstrated in our finance lab with the aid of Bloomberg, via case studies and the use of online databases. Regular training sessions led by experienced Bloomberg trainers help you gain valuable practice in accessing and using market data. The Bloomberg platform also provides an opportunity for virtual trading practice and competitions.

The programme is well established and attracts a substantial number of applications from over 20 countries each year. This international aspect enables you to gain a deeper and wider learning experience and to benefit from networking opportunities during your studies and after graduation.
