The course responds directly to employers’ needs and prioritises team work; research and data analysis; report writing; presentations and multi-cultural interaction. It focuses on real-world skills and comprises a foundation module, eight finance modules and a short finance-based business report. The optional modules are varied and aimed at building your overall knowledge of international finance. Your options include, global financial markets, global risk analysis, risk and investment, econometrics, corporate finance, econometrics and emerging financial markets, to name a few.

You can study the straight MFin International Finance degree, or you can specialise in one of the following two degrees:

  • MFin International Finance and Investment Management
