Finance and Investment Management (with CFA Level 1) (and without CFA)

Course content

Your programme of study

Finance and investment management is a major growth area with careers and business often attracting very high salaries and bonuses. Aberdeen is well known for its expertise in these two areas and it offers two complementary disciplines offering you the opportunity to take the leading professional finance qualification, CFA level 1, during the course. If you do not wish to take the CFA exam there is an alternative research-based programme.

This programme allows you to convert to Finance and Investment Management from any undergraduate degree discipline in just one year. The university offers you market-leading financial databases (the Thomson-Reuters Eikon suite) to support both the teaching and the individual study.


Designed to enable you to prosper in what is a complex and competitive and continually changing market place or to prepare for further study if that is your career aim. More information about the CFA Institute and the CFA program can be found at cfainstitute.org/programs/cfaprogram/Pages/index.aspx
