Course aims
Financial services are not only one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy but also one of the two largest customers of IT! This MSc is offered together with the Department of Economics in order to give you both a command of the software technologies that financial institutions require to "embrace the challenge of change" and of the business context and organisational structures that IT systems need to support.

This MSc programme concentrates on architectures for building scalable financial software systems, thus preparing software engineers for a plethora of jobs in the financial industry. In particular it considers technologies and techniques that are particularly relevant for the challenges of the financial market, predominantly a need to migrate from mission-critical, monolithic legacy systems to more flexible architectures that allow speedy reaction to customer and business partner’s needs. The technical aspect must be seen in the context of the business environment, where software engineers typically interact with a world of financial jargon and departments with specialised roles and needs.

Course modules
This specialist course consists of five core modules and three option modules. For the MSc there is also a project.

Core Modules
Corporate Finance
Financial Information Systems
Personal and Group Skills
Service-Oriented Architectures
System Re-engineering

Start Dates
October and January each year.
