Global Finance and Investment MSc

The Global Finance and Investment MSc programme provides students with an understanding of domestic and global financial systems and key principles of finance and investment management.

Candidates will study financial institutions, the role of the non-deposit financial institutions, corporate strategic investment decisions, techniques of asset and firm valuation and the nature and use of complex financial instruments.

The course is ideal for students who wish to pursue careers in investment, finance management and financial analysis or to pursue further studies in finance.

Most students will take part in a placement or internship as part of the Executive Company Project module, although the option of a traditional dissertation is available.
