Course summary

Overview

If you're ready to climb the ladder in the competitive world of finance, this MSc Finance degree course is the perfect way to build on your previous studies and experience, and develop the skills you need to achieve your career ambitions.

On this course, you'll unpack the three major themes in finance: investments, corporate finance, and financial markets and institutions. You'll focus on financial investments, get your hands on our Bloomberg Suite and learn from experts in the industry.

When you graduate, you'll have the analytical tools you need to understand the complexities of modern financial markets – so you'll be ready to pursue a career as a city professional, or as a financial manager in a non-financial organisation.
