Course summary

Overview

The global financial sector has developed rapidly in recent years. Our Finance MBus could help to equip you with the necessary skills to spot, analyse and resolve complex problems in a strategic way, and effectively harness the rapid changes in the financial sector.

Aimed at international students, this integrated master’s course is studied over four semesters, covering around 18 months. If you have already successfully completed two years of finance related undergraduate study, successful completion of this course will see you achieve a master’s qualification from Coventry Business School.

This course aims to provide you with a deep knowledge of a broad range of financial tools, as well as knowledge of financial markets, which can prove important in any future career in the financial sector. In addition, we offer support throughout the course in developing your English communication skills, with a focus on financial report writing and presentation proficiencies, to help you operate effectively in the increasingly international financial industry, which offers careers in a range of countries around the world.

Coventry Business School was ranked as 'excellent' by Eduniversal in 2019, an annual ranking of Business Schools across over 150 countries, and by studying with us, you will have the opportunity to access our Trading Floor (subject to availability), one of the largest academic trading floors in Europe. This facility makes use of market leading databases, such as Thomson Reuters Eikon and Bloomberg, to allow you to gain hands-on experience which could support you in your future career.

Course information

With increased investment in financial technology, growth in the sector in new locations around the world, and a focus on the importance of good financial governance within major corporations, the financial industry is seeing a period of expansion. Against this backdrop, this course is designed to prepare you with the skills and knowledge needed to harness this expansion and have a successful financial career.

Taught over four semesters, the course is split into two distinct, but interrelated stages, with semesters one and two covering finance theory and an understanding of financial institutions, as well as exploring more specific topics such as corporate reporting and financial technologies. Semesters three and four then deepen your learning in specialist areas, developing your skills in econometrics and risk management, as well as investigating good governance and ethics within financial institutions. Across all modules, we aim to use real life examples, to help you bridge the gap between theory and practice, and understand how to apply theories and techniques in different contexts and situations.

Employability is embedded into the course content, with a module , Employability Skills in Finance, dedicated to employability skills within a financial context. Outside of the classroom, this employability focus continues, as you will have access to Coventry University’s Talent Team, who can give tailored advice to support you as you consider your future career.

Career prospects

The financial sector continues to grow across the world, with an increasing international focus. This course aims to prepare you for a future career in the financial sector, by giving you the opportunity to develop a strong knowledge of the English language within a financial context, as well as financial theories and topics.
