Course content

This programme is designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in the theoretical and practical sides of finance. It contains compulsory elements in asset pricing, corporate finance, financial reporting and analysis, quantitative methods and empirical finance, and offers optional units in areas including derivatives, investment management, credit risk, financial modelling, banking, behavioural finance and advanced corporate finance.

The programme is suitable for individuals with good undergraduate degrees in economics or accounting and finance, but also for those with more scientific backgrounds (e.g. an undergraduate education in mathematics, engineering or natural sciences).

Programme structure

In teaching block one you will complete four compulsory units, while in teaching block two you will choose three from a list of optional units alongside one further compulsory unit. The final part of the MSc is a research-based dissertation. This involves identifying and analysing a research question in finance under the guidance of a member of staff. The dissertation gives you an opportunity to explore an original problem, source and process the relevant financial data, analyse that data and learn to draw appropriate conclusions. The results are presented in a final report of up to 15,000 words.
