Course summary

This course is designed to provide a framework for consolidating and enhancing students' finance and economics skills. Students have the opportunity to learn from experienced finance specialists and the chance to develop advanced knowledge in preparation for practice or further professional training. Deregulation, globalisation and the effect of the worldwide economic crisis across international stock markets have led to a growing interest in the subject of finance. Professionals in today’s market need to be adept at managing investments of both a financial and economic nature and use sound and informed judgement in order to make crucial decisions. Lincoln’s MSc Finance offers students the opportunity to explore practice in the context of relevant contemporary theory and research. Students can go beyond the fundamental theories to study advanced techniques, with a focus on quantitative methods and developing their critical-thinking skills.

The programme is both quantitative and research-orientated in nature. Features: The Lincoln International Business School has an experienced team of staff, which is made up of academically and professionally qualified lecturers with relevant industrial experience and finance experts with wide research interests. The School hosts a series of visiting speakers each year. As part of the School, students will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts. Previous speakers have included representatives from organisations such as Deloitte, Santander, HSBC, Innocent, The Institute of Internal Auditors and Sir David Tweedie (ex-Chairman of the IASB). Students will also have the chance to build their skills and knowledge further with extra-curricular activities such as joining a society, volunteering or becoming a Student Ambassador.

Career and Personal Development: MSc Finance graduates may find opportunities across the financial sector in areas including banking, foreign exchange, sales, and financial risk assessment and management. Some students go in to careers in research or academia. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
