Our suite of Finance Master’s degrees brings you a deep theoretical and conceptual knowledge of finance and related quantitative skills, which will prepare you for a range of careers in global financial institutions and blue-chip companies. Our postgraduates are highly employable in a wide range of roles. The skills they acquire at WBS open up opportunities to work for banks and treasuries, asset managers, regulators and consultancies, policy-makers and many others.
You will study six core modules and two elective modules of your choice, one of which must be from Accounting. Finance modules are taken from our very successful MSc in Finance – the UK’s top pure finance course.
Every year we offer many elective modules allowing you to take modules from behavioural science through to quantitative finance, giving you the opportunity to tailor the course to your preferences. Please note that availability and delivery modes may vary.
Assessment is a mix of exams, project work, and tests, with your 10-12,000 word project and dissertation bringing all your learning together.
Lectures & classes
Lectures introduce key theories, concepts, and economic models. In classes you will solve financial problems and numerical exercises, analyse case studies, and make presentations of research published in academic journals.
A 10–12,000 word dissertation gives you the opportunity to develop, test, practice and apply the techniques and theories you have gained through your studies. You will be supervised and supported throughout by one of our academic staff or teaching associates and will usually submit your dissertation in early September.
