About the MSc programme

This is the world’s only finance master’s degree with an integrated specialisation in the study of private equity. This unique programme, supported by The Abraaj Group, offers you unparalleled access to leading private equity researchers and practitioners who have actively participated in the deals which are studied.

The foundation of the programme is built in the first term with the study of Asset Markets and Corporate Finance. In the second term, you will deepen your specific knowledge of private equity by taking a dedicated course taught by the School's Abraaj Group Chair in Finance and Private Equity. This will explore the structure of private equity (PE) funds and how PE can be used in start-ups, in scaling-up cash flow businesses, and in restructuring firms facing financial distress. It explores the link between PE and venture capital on the one hand and public securities markets on the other.

The programme involves a number of case studies and is taught in conjunction with a range of practitioners in the field via a weekly additional PE practitioner seminar.

Graduate destinations

A significant proportion of graduates join either investment banks or boutique corporate finance firms as analysts as a first step in their careers into the world of private equity, however, some have been hired directly upon graduation by private equity or venture capital firms. Following a similar structure to the generalist MSc Finance, the programme also prepares students for various roles in investment banks, consultancies, hedge funds and asset management firms, or to pursue further study. In addition, having met on the programme, students have worked together on entrepreneurial ventures and start-ups.

This programme is not intended as suitable preparation for the PhD Finance at LSE (if you are interested in PhD study, please see MSc Finance and Economics).

This programme provides the broad preparation needed for work in education policy. The teaching methods emphasise dealing with applied issues and facilitate your development as a critical thinker through engaging with real life issues.

Why this programme

◾This interdisciplinary programme draws on sociology, political science and economics to provide rigorous and broad grounding in theory for studying education as a vital component of public policy.
◾You will explore how equity in education influences equity in society and vice versa. Educational disadvantage and inequity do not exist in isolation from other forms of disadvantage. Therefore the programme critically analyses the ability of education policy to influence wider social issues.
◾The programme places joint emphasis on qualitative and quantitative analytical methods, which are reinforced through application to real policy issues under the guidance of experienced tutors.
◾You will be taught by an international and interdisciplinary team of academics, who combine subject expertise with practical experience in education and public policy. The programme's applied focus is reinforced and explored through external speakers and a study trip.
◾The teaching and assessment methods emphasise working critically with complex arguments. This will prepare you for the normative judgements required by decision makers once the limits of positive analysis have been reached.
◾This programme was developed by the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change to address contemporary challenges of education policy. These arise as education serves an increasingly wider range of public policy aims relating to equity, health, social policy and the economy.

Programme structure

You will take five core and one optional course, as well as complete a dissertation on a chosen topic.

Core courses
◾Education and public policy
◾Educational policy making in action
◾Equity, social justice and change
◾International and comparative education
◾Practitioner enquiry and decision-making.

Optional courses
◾Economics for education and public policy
◾Higher education as a field of research, policy and practice
◾International education policy
◾Leadership in implementing education policy
◾Modern education thought.

Career prospects

Graduates will be equipped for careers as analysts, consultants, administrators, policy makers and leaders in the governance of education, whether in local, regional or national governments, international organisations, NGOs or large scale education providers, such as school chains or private sector education firms. Education is increasingly seen as part of a broader spectrum of public policy issues relating to health, social policy and the economy. Furthermore, it is expected to achieve an ever wider range of objectives and policy discourse on education is increasingly international in scope. Therefore, working with education policy requires individuals with a broad skillset and an international outlook.

Educational aims of the programme

The need for an Investment Management programme arises from the continuing global demand for professionals working in the fields of investment management, investment banking, pension funds, insurance companies and alternative investment partnerships (such as hedge funds, private equity and sovereign wealth funds).

The aim of the programme is to provide students with the array of skills required to operate successfully in an investment management or investment analysis role within the finance industry or to pursue further academic study within the subject area.

The programme will provide a high quality education that is current, intellectually rigorous and attuned to the needs of investment and finance professionals. It provides the theoretical underpinning and the practical skills that such professionals need in order to cope with an increasingly complex global financial environment.

It also provides a valuable foundation for those considering continuing their academic studies in the field of applied finance, accounting and banking to PhD level. The programme provides students with a basis for developing their own approach to learning and personal development through a combination of compulsory and optional modules that are united by a focus on dialogue between theory and practice.

The compulsory modules provide a rigorous grounding in theory plus the quantitative techniques necessary to undertake empirical investigations and form balanced evaluations of practice. The optional modules offer students the opportunity to focus their study and to specialise in areas that are of particular interest to them and their future career needs.

Graduates of the programme will obtain the skills that enable them to function as an investment professional or to develop independent academic research. These include:

  • Strong analytical skills which will be developed in the equity investment analysis and fixed income investment modules where the emphasis is clearly on the ability to analyse potential investment asset
  • Highly developed decision making skills; with much of the focus of the whole programme on decision taking, but particularly in the Portfolio Management module which focuses on key decisions such as nderstanding how and why investment mandates are awarded, the role of asset allocation and key decisions such as the decision to be a passive investor or active investor
  • Problem solving abilities are developed in many areas including learning to select appropriate assets for a portfolio based on an appropriate valuation methodology, economic drivers and the agreed risk tolerance of clients or sponsors.
  • Students will gain an insight into the newly developed area of behavioural finance
  • Understanding how investment style creates portfolio biases and affects performance

Students will also gain a wide range of technical financial skills as part of their understanding the investment process (the method by which a universe of potential investments is filtered to result in a final portfolio of investment holdings which reflect investment objectives).

They will also able to evaluate investment performance against a peer group or an investment benchmark such as an appropriate stock market or bond market index.

Personal Development Planning (PDP) has recently been introduced at postgraduate level and is available through a PDP area in SurreyLearn.

We encourage you to take full advantage of the wide range of materials and courses available to help develop your personal skills portfolio, ranging from academic writing training through to CV preparation and presentation skills.

Course-specific personal development is incorporated via Bloomberg competency certification and preparation for Level 1 Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams.

Inclusive Design advances accessibility, and encompasses the full range of human diversity including ability, language, culture, gender and age. Read more
Inclusive Design advances accessibility, and encompasses the full range of human diversity including ability, language, culture, gender and age. Inclusive Design recognizes that we aren’t all the same. Design must be usable, flexible, and customizable among other qualities to be truly inclusive. From policies, customer service, infrastructure, technology, buildings to everyday products—we can design so that everyone can be accommodated and included.

MASTER OF DESIGN IN INCLUSIVE DESIGN

This program is primarily delivered through an online technology and learning system. It is the only one of its kind in Canada. We offer you the opportunity to become uniquely qualified as a global leader in the growing field of inclusive design.

You will learn to think differently and aim to break through societal barriers to address the growing demand for access and inclusion

The program benefits from accomplished faculty engaged with multi-disciplinary research and design practices, and you will bring valuable and diverse insights from your own educational and professional experiences, to both study and research projects.

You will explore equity and access issues through the lens of design thinking, leveraged by the application of inclusive digital technologies

The program prepares graduates for doctoral programs or advanced careers in:

Digital Media and ICT Systems
Public Sector Policy and Administration
Design for Built Environments
Arts and Culture
Healthcare sector
Graphic and Communication Design.

PROGRAM DELIVERY

The program accommodates the needs of working professionals and international students. The full-time two-year program includes:

Two-week, on-campus, residential intensives in both the first and second year of the program
Seminar courses delivered in a highly interactive online format throughout the year
A major research project in the second year of the program that will position you at the leading edge of inclusive design thinking
Colloquium session in second year, open to the public
A culminating festival and graduate symposium

You will co-create your pathway through the program with opportunities for elective courses in both the first and second year of the program

Seminar courses are delivered through both online and face-to-face sessions that support students learning both remotely and on campus. Coursework includes group projects, online discussion forums, and contribution from guest experts and leading innovators in the field of inclusive design. Research positions and assistantships are available throughout the program as opportunities arise with the Inclusive Design Research Centre, and both private and public sector funded projects.

All courses and class materials are accessible and assistance is available for students with English as a second language, and for those experiencing other challenges for learning and coursework.

Intensive on-campus ‘residencies’, consist of two full courses, and take place in each of the two summer terms. Students are required to attend these classes and activities on campus at OCAD University in Toronto.

Program Objectives

You will learn the systems and methodologies to tackle equity and diversity issues facing contemporary society

You will graduate with advanced skills, insights and resourcefulness to lead the critical transitions and meet rising demand for inclusive design practices globally

You will be equipped to excel in evolving professional fields including digital media, ICT, health, education, government and other public and private sector fields

You will contribute to meeting legal and policy commitments for accessibility, equity, diversity and inclusion at local, national and global levels.

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) has legislated an accessible Ontario, Canada by 2025 which means inclusive design is fast becoming an essential skill for every business and organization in Ontario.

You will be joining the practice and research communities devoted to the design systems for diversity and accessibility

You will be prepared for doctoral programs to further leading-edge research advancing knowledge of inclusive design across many sectors and professional fields

You will have access and engagement with the renowned Inclusive Design Research Centre (IDRC) at OCAD U.
