MSc In Financial Services


University of Limerick    Kemmy Business School

Full time September MSc One Year

About the course

The MSc in Financial Services is a one-year full-time programme of study designed to equip students with the careful balance of academic knowledge and technical skills that are required for more high value-added positions available in the financial services industry in Ireland and abroad.

Our graduates have found successful careers in the global finance industry as:

Financial Analyst
Risk Analyst
Credit Derivatives Analyst
Systems Specialist
Futures Trader
Price & Evaluations
Compliance Officer
Risk Manager
Asset Manager
Academic Researchers

Although primarily intended for business graduates, including recent graduates working in the financial services industry, the MSc will also appeal to graduates from quantitatively-oriented disciplines, such as engineering and the mathematical sciences, who have prior relevant training and/or academic knowledge in the field of financial services. The unique combination of subjects offered in the MSc facilitates subsequent professional accreditation within the international financial services industry.

We have pioneered the practical use of trading simulation within the University sector. This allows our students to actively manage a portfolio of stocks, bonds, futures and derivative instruments. This experience has given our students a significant advantage in understanding the dynamics of the marketplace.
