The compulsory and optional modules of this exciting programme cover a very wide range of specialised areas from which you will gain a thorough and in-depth knowledge of the most current developments in the global financial markets and institutions, investment and wealth management. The module syllabuses are designed to develop your quantitative analysis skills, enabling you to critically analyse financial investment proposals and empirical applications of corporate finance. These skills are deemed crucial for a successful career in the banking and finance sector.

All the Finance based Masters programmes within the School of Management have full access to the Financial Times on-line and the opportunity to learn and carry out practical work in our dedicated, state-of-the-art Bloomberg Financial Lab. The virtual financial platform allows you to access and engage with live market data through applying practical evaluation and financial modelling. The programme also offers you an opportunity to gain the Bloomberg certificate - Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC), which is widely recognised in the banking and financial industry.

The professional world our successful graduates are aiming to enter are seeking students that are able to conduct useful research, think critically about that research and apply to complex problems – this ,inter alia, necessitates effective use of modern ICT and the ability to utilise knowledge effectively. Particularly within this field graduates will be expected to show excellent quantitative skills. These students will be assumed to process effective two-way communication skills and be comfortable and effective in self-managed and team environments. The formative and summative assessments necessary to develop, hone and showcase these abilities are, of necessity many and varied and these programmes will expose the students to individual coursework, and presentations, group tasks, reflective logs, role-playing as well as traditional closed book examinations.
