This is for you if... you want to apply your understanding of economics and quantitative techniques to the analysis of problems in business regulation, organisation and finance.

Course description

The MSc in Business Analysis and Finance provides you with the opportunity to apply your knowledge of economics to the analysis of business problems and finance. The course combines advanced academic learning with real-world practical insights and will open up a wide range of career opportunities.

By taking this MSc, you will gain advanced knowledge and expertise in quantitative techniques and have the opportunity to apply those skills to problem solving in the areas of business regulation, organisation and finance. The course will equip you with computer skills which can be applied to business data analysis and develop your confidence in the use and presentation of economic arguments in your professional role.

To help you develop the skills that leading employers ask for, and let you see how traders work, we have 12 Bloomberg terminals in the University Library.

On completion of the MSc you will be prepared for a wide variety of careers in management, the civil service and international organisations.

Careers and employability

Our finance and economics courses have been developed to match the needs of employers and are highly regarded within business and government, whether national or international.

This course begins with a 3-week zero credit module covering two professional certificates. Firstly you will cover the content for the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Certificate. It is recognised by employers in the finance industry and can be completed optionally externally at a fee. You will also be introduced to the Bloomberg Terminals and given the opportunity to complete the free online exam 'Bloomberg Essentials'. Completing these professional certificates can help you stand out to employers.

Many of our students have gone on to work in major banks, companies, and governments, or pursued careers in academia and education.

A postgraduate qualification from the University of Leicester is career changing. It can be the spring board to promotion with your current employer, the platform from which to launch a new career, or simply an aid to becoming more effective in your current role.

If you are already in employment, enhancing your career by studying at postgraduate level gives a clear signal to employers that you are committed to developing your skills and knowledge and have studied to a higher level.

Our Career Development Service is here to support you, with advice on interviews, CVs, work experience, volunteering and more. From Freshers’ Week to Graduation and beyond, they are here to help you reach your professional goals.
