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.
Five core modules cover key areas in modern finance while three elective modules allow you to focus on your preferences. Please note that availability and delivery modes of modules may vary. Modules are taught through a combination of lectures, classes, and computer lab sessions. Assessment is a mix of exams and coursework with your 8,000 word dissertation bringing all your learning together at the end.
Lectures and 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.
Lab work will give you hands-on experience of using software to perform finance-related calculations and conduct realistic simulations. Econometric methods are also taught in the lab, so you will learn to apply econometric software to empirical research and financial market estimations.
An 8,000 word dissertation gives you the opportunity to develop, test, practise, 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.
