International Finance (without CFA Level 1) MSc

Course content

If you want an exciting career in the financial markets of the world and you are confident with numbers, this programme will give you an edge when working in financial markets in terms of understanding of theory and practice in finance internationally. You are able to evaluate risks and understand decisions which are applicable to multinationals, governments and other organisations in developing and emerging markets. This programme will broaden your knowledge and enable you to work for international organisations within corporate finance, investment management, trading and accounting professions.

You develop analysis of a range of issues in international trade and the international monetary and financial systems, including foreign direct investment, balance of payments, sovereign debt, international currency and commodity markets. This will involve drawing on relevant elements of international macroeconomics, trade theory, the theory of option pricing, futures, the economics of international financial markets and other key elements of international finance.

This is an industry where there will always be plenty of opportunities globally in areas such as industry, investments, securities, trading, banking, investment banking, accountancy and financial management. The programme is supported by excellent research over decades within economics and finance including the Aberdeen Centre for Research in Energy Economics and Finance (ACREEF) which has been able to collaborate successfully with business in the oil and gas industry centre of Aberdeen. Graduates studying the programme have gone on to senior managerial positions.
