Financial markets are in constant flux. To understand what is happening, and to take advantage of the changes that are occurring, you need a deep understanding of the theory of finance, an ability to apply academic concepts to the real world, a strong economic intuition, and good quantitative skills. We cover a broad range of areas in finance, and our research feeds into our teaching and helps you equip yourself for a career in finance and related areas.
