A 2:1 or above with honours in Accounting, Finance, Investment, Economics, Maths, Business or related discipline from a recognised university. Evidence of mathematical/quantitative ability is essential. The majority of our candidates will be expecting a First or 2:1 degree, however, we do consider all applications where there is evidence of exceptional performance in modules relevant to the programme of study, significant relevant work experience or professional qualifications such as CFA, ACCA, ICAEW, ICAS and CIMA.
Applicants are also required to meet the course prerequisites and meet our English language requirements. See our website for details.
A Masters at the is a great way to gain a competitive edge in your field or gain specialist training in a particular subject area. At Exeter we combine teaching excellence and high levels of student satisfaction with world class research. A member of the Russell Group, our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear focus on high performance. We are the fastest growing research-intensive university in the UK and 98 per cent of our research was rated as international or world-leading quality in the last national Research Excellence Framework.
I chose to study at the Business School because the MSc Financial Analysis and Fund Management programme was very different to many others I saw in the field of finance. As well as studying for my MSc I also had the opportunity to work towards Levels I and II of the CFA examinations. This means in the span of 12-months I will graduate with a degree, whilst being part way through a second qualification which I feel has greatly enhanced my employability.
The teaching at Exeter has been second to none, the lectures are challenging and encompassed all the knowledge I needed for a career in the financial industry. A module I particularly enjoyed was ‘Financial Modelling’ as this gave us the opportunity to create and analyse portfolios, providing a more practical understanding of what we were studying and how to create something we would be using day-to-day in a career.
A highlight of the course has been the opportunity to partake in the Business School’s Ethics Challenge, which was sponsored by P1 Management, a local investment company, and judged by experts from the CFA institute and Business School academics. This was a great opportunity to apply the knowledge gained from my studies on ethics and analyse a case study. As part of the process I had to write a 1,500 word essay on my findings and then present my case to the panel of four judges. I am thrilled to have won the challenge, as this is something I can bring to interviews and it will enhance to my CV, in addition to my MSc.. The challenge is open to all finance students at the University and I would highly recommence you take part, it is a great experience.
I was also very lucky to be awarded the Global Excellence Scholarship in addition to a CFA exam scholarship which was a great achievement. The scholarship has been very helpful as it has not only taken an edge off financing a Masters, it has reassured me that I have worked hard to be here and that the grades I have achieved really mean something. I will always cherish making it here and being able to study abroad at an excellent establishment.
