Course content

MSc Investment Analysis will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills required for a career in the financial sector, banking or investment management. There is a strong focus throughout on the practical application of finance within a trading or corporate setting. Your studies will culminate in a financial analyst evaluation of a UK listed company for your final project.

You will study equity, debt and derivative markets in domestic and international sectors, discovering how to undertake security valuation and portfolio management as well as learning about the key techniques used by financial traders.

At Aston Business School we focus on Learning by Doing. With a dedicated Reuters Trading Room facility, you can get ahead of the competition by practising your trading skills in a life-like environment. It also gives you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with Reuters' database, ThomsonOne.

You will be encouraged to complete the Reuters Certification – an industry recognised professional qualification. During the summer term you will also have the opportunity of attending preparation and revision classes for the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst®) Level one programme.
