Course summary

Since the banking crisis, risk managers have been increasingly sought after. Large companies rely on them to advise on appropriate risk-taking, identify and assess threats, and decide how to avoid, reduce or transfer risks.

Our Finance and Risk Management MSc will develop your knowledge of risk management theory at a company, country and international level, investigating contemporary debates and controversies in risk management.

This course is part of our Finance MSc programme. All students complete the same core finance modules, then from the end of the first term you will be able to tailor the course to your individual strengths and career aspirations through option modules and the option to specialise in one of five areas.

The other specialisms offered are:

Finance and Accounting MSc
Finance and Banking MSc
Finance and Investment MSc
Economics and Finance MSc.

Course structure

The course is composed of three phases:

Phase 1 teaches the core subjects of finance, economics and research methods

Phase 2 introduces specialist modules in finance and risk management

Phase 3 is the dissertation that draws together the learning from the whole of the programme, allowing you to develop your research skills and capacity for critical analysis while creating a specialisation in a particular field of finance and risk management

All modules on the course involve both taught sessions and guided independent study. For a typical module, approximately 30% of the total hours comprise taught activity, 10% is guided study and supervision, and the remainder is independent study.

Career prospects

A postgraduate qualification from Brighton Business School will help you to specialise and stand out in today's highly competitive job market.

Finance and Risk Management MSc graduates are in demand among financial institutions, regulatory bodies, government agencies and risk management divisions in large non-financial companies.
