If you are interested in a career in finance then this course will equip you with the analytical and managerial skills to succeed within the sector, after any undergraduate degree with a quantitative element.

We have developed the programme in response to market demand for graduates with strong financial awareness plus the essential skills to function as effective managers, both within the financial sector and across a range of multinational organisations.

The course is regularly refreshed to keep pace with advances in the financial sector, and is bench marked against the syllabus of the CFA Institute. Current study themes include financial econometric's and forecasting, investment and risk management, sustainable strategic decision making, corporate financial management and international financial markets.

Facilities include a trading suite equipped with Bloomberg Terminals, which are used by financial traders and investment banks globally. The suite provides you with access to the live financial and economic data, portfolio construction and optimisation tools, information and analytics to support your studies. The facility is also equipped with state-or-art econometric packages such E-views 10.0 which is used on Financial Econometric's and Forecasting module to estimate and interpret various econometric models for the purpose of designing trading strategies.

You will also undertake a number of professional development modules to give you a competitive advantage in the jobs market, in terms of self-development and leadership.

In the second semester of year 2 of this programme you will have the opportunity to choose to complete either a master’s Internship or master’s Study Abroad module. If you choose the internship option, we will work with you to secure an internship opportunity relevant to the industry sector you are most interested in.
