This course is ranked by the Financial Times as one of the top Finance Masters programmes in the UK.
It has core elements based around the three main classes of capital investment activity: equity markets, fixed interest markets, and derivative markets.
The Capital Market Analysis module examines the institutional and decision making framework of equity investment from the perspective of the fund manager and the corporate financial manager. A similar perspective is adopted in the parallel modules dealing with fixed interest and derivative markets.
The modules in this degree introduce all the main techniques used by the modern investment professional. With these practical applications in mind, theoretical models including the use of Datastream and associated software, mathematical techniques, and spreadsheet models are integrated as appropriate.
A wide range of optional modules related to the core subjects are available, specialising in areas such as entrepreneurship and venture capital, risk management, or international finance which can provide you with grounding research skills required for a specialist dissertation in your chosen area.
Students on this course will particularly benefit from the access we provide to Bloomberg Terminals – the world’s most powerful platform for finance professionals who require real-time data.
