Investments govern a huge part of our day-to-day lives: they fund the roads we use, the services we are provided with and the products we can consume.
Due to the breadth of Investment industries, courses in this field offer an interdisciplinary approach to learning, combining methodologies from Accounting, Banking, Finance and Business Management.
Training includes activities such as market research, financial forecasting, and the application of valuation methodology to financial modelling. Consideration may also be given to the economics of the industry, including public policy, corporate legislation and industry regulation.
You may specialise your Masters towards careers in fixed income investment, equity investment, international investment, and corporate finance. Other careers include risk management, trade and stock brokerage.
