With a focus on big data analytics, our Finance Analytics MSc is designed to provide you with rigorous applied training in quantitative and empirical methods in Finance. This course is suited to individuals with strong quantitative backgrounds who desire the skills & expertise needed for a range of highly skilled technical professions in finance.

Course detail

The MSc in Finance Analytics at King’s Business School is designed predominantly for graduates pursuing careers in financial data & analytics, either in large incumbent financial firms or one of the disruptors focused on financial innovation. Our MSc in Finance Analytics offers a unique combination of a rigorous academic programme that teaches the recent developments in data analytics and a unique practitioners’ view of how these developments are shaping the practical aspects of finance. For example, the programme teaches big data methods with applications to risk management, product origination, and trading; text mining techniques with applications to forecasting; automation techniques with applications to robot-advice/trading; and FinTech developments in banking. Graduates will thus gain knowledge and skills that are highly sought after by financial industry firms, including incumbent large financial institutions as well as disruptor/start-ups focusing on innovation. In addition, given the importance of analytics in a broader context, the course provides skills that can be used across a wide range of industries outside Finance, including e-commerce, hospitality, retail, pharmaceutical, and media. This course is best suited for students with strong mathematical skills and quantitative backgrounds, such as finance, mathematics, engineering, computer science, and economics.
