Financial systems are highly complex and constantly evolving. On this intensive, 12-month course you will gain the skills to understand the financial system now and in the future. You will build a sound theoretical and practical grounding in banking and finance, equipping yourself with the skills needed to excel in business or in research.

You’ll also become expert in the cutting-edge quantitative techniques needed for in-depth empirical investigations in banking and finance. You’ll also discover how to critically analyse theories and data in order to make effective, evidence-based financial decisions.

Working with leading academics, you’ll discover the most important recent developments in financial research. Meanwhile, you’ll build the analytical skills needed to make your own contribution to the latest thinking in the field.

You’ll benefit from research-led teaching, learning from lecturers, researchers and tutors who are members of Norwich Business School’s highly-respected Finance Group (FIN). Made up of leading academics, FIN focuses on such research areas as corporate finance, banking, investments, behavioural finance, asset pricing, energy and environmental finance, and many others. Aside from your studies, you’ll be invited to attend the FIN seminar series, where you’ll be able to hear from distinguished guest speakers from prominent institutions. This ensures you graduate with a solid grasp of the latest theories and techniques in the field and the main challenges surrounding them.

In addition to your Master’s qualification, you will receive support and access to online training for certification in Thomson Reuters at no extra cost, including Eikon and Datastream.
