Finance and Investment
This programme is designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in the theoretical and practical sides of finance. It contains compulsory elements in asset pricing, corporate finance, financial reporting and analysis, and quantitative methods and offers optional units in areas including derivatives, investment management and financial modelling.
The programme is suitable for individuals with good undergraduate degrees in economics or accounting and finance, but also for those with more scientific backgrounds (e.g. an undergraduate education in mathematics, engineering or natural sciences).
A first or good upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in finance, accounting, economics, business, mathematics or another quantitative subject, such as engineering, physics or computing.
See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
In teaching block one you will complete four compulsory units, while in teaching block two you will choose four from a list of optional units. The final part of the MSc is a research-based dissertation. This involves identifying and analysing a research question in finance under the guidance of a member of staff. The dissertation gives you an opportunity to explore an original problem, source and process the relevant financial data, analyse that data and learn to draw appropriate conclusions. The results are presented in a final report of up to 15,000 words.
