MSc Economic & Financial Risk Analysis 2 years (FT)

Overview

The MSc Economic and Financial Risk Analysis was launched in response to the changing economic and financial environment. It is designed to provide students with the fundamental concepts and the necessary tools required by the financial sector. Focusing on Financial Risk Analysis, Derivatives, Investments and Econometrics, this programme provides students with the quantitative skills needed by employers and thus opens up a diverse set of career opportunities both within and outside the financial sector. The emphasis is on ‘education’ with graduates encouraged to think for themselves and become proficient in problem solving.

Course Structure

The first year is an intensive and extensive introduction to the world of Economics and Finance. The aim is that by the year-end, students will be at the same level as a graduate of a BA/BBS/BSc graduate in Economics and/or Finance. Students will cover the basic concepts, empirical methods and applications in Investments, Derivatives, International Finance and Econometrics as well as choosing field courses of interest from a range of optional modules.

The second year builds upon this and is structured to be stimulating and challenging. Students take core modules in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics and Financial Economics. Students can also take specialised field modules that may include Financial Risk Analysis, Advanced Derivatives, Empirical Finance, International Finance, Corporate Finance and Market Microstructure. The programme also requires students to undertake a research thesis or a three-month Work Placement during the summer term.

Duration: 2 years Full-Time
