Course summary

Overview

This course is designed to make you uniquely competitive in a newly recognized employment niche. There is a deficit of individuals who both rigorously understand financial data and can predict when customers will become befuddled, bored or mistrustful of the communications issued by the financial world.

Drawing on the combined expertise of our Behavioural Science Centre and Stirling's Accounting and Finance Division, this program will train you in the skills needed to design customers’ journeys through the world of personal and corporate finance.

As well as giving you a thorough grounding in behavioural decision making generally (e.g. the role of emotions and attentional biases in judgment and decision making; the rich array of conscious and unconscious motivations that guide behaviour), our Masters course covers the core theories in financial decision-making. You'll develop the critical skills to assess investment strategies, product designs and regulations, plus the technical skills to develop and pilot test your ideas.

Course objectives

This course will give you the skills you'll need for a successful career in finance, insurance, trading, real estate, banking, regulation, consultancy and related areas. Students can exit at PG cert an PD Dip awards.

MSc Behavioural Decision Making for Finance teaches you how behavioural tendencies impact upon financial outcomes. This course will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • develop the critical and technical skills needed to develop and assess pilot test investment strategies, product designs and regulations
  • learn the research skills required to predict market performance
  • design attractive financial products and anticipate the direct and indirect impacts of regulations
  • gain the critical skills required to assess investment strategies, financial products and financial regulations
  • cultivate communication skills to highlight the value added by our evidence-based approach
