Course summary

Our MSc Finance and Investment is CIMA accredited and designed to fast-track the careers of graduates from non-finance backgrounds with ambitions to work in investment management, investment banking and related sectors.

Studying investments raises some interesting issues, such as: why do companies trade so much? Is the best investment strategy to simply track the stock market index? How should risk be measured? How should assets be priced? On this master's programme, you will learn about trading, portfolio management and global investment analysis, and have exposure to key financial trading software throughout.

The programme shares a common taught first semester with MSc Finance and MSc Finance and Management before specialising in finance and investment in semesters two and three. It will give you the analytical skills to critically evaluate complex investment issues, both systematically and creatively, to improve the practice of risk and investment management. You will be provided with tools to evaluate issues facing financial market participants and to improve the practice of investment and risk management. Module content focuses on both the trading and portfolio management sides of finance and has a substantial focus on investment, including portfolio management, financial trading and global investment analysis.

You will be taught by internationally renowned academics who are able to bring fresh insights into their teaching, both from their research and from their advisory roles on government policy and in industry. Research strengths include corporate finance, accounting, financial markets and corporate governance. Our teaching is academically rigorous and a strong emphasis is placed on practical relevance.

Our trading room, which incorporates Thomson-Reuters Eikon financial trading software, is integrated into the programme and will provide the platform for many of the computer lab sessions, enabling you to practically apply concepts you have learned. Currently, students have access to the Trading Room in the evenings and at weekends. There is also the opportunity to work independently towards a certificate of competency in Eikon, which is awarded by Thomson-Reuters.
