Finance and Investment Management MSc

Course Description

Based within minutes of London’s financial heartland, the University of Liverpool in London is perfectly situated for students considering its new MSc Finance and Investment programme. The MSc syllabus draws extensively from the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) programme curriculum and you will be supported to sit the CFA Level I examination alongside your MSc programme studies. The CFA qualification is a globally recognised, postgraduate designation that provides a strong foundation of investment analysis and portfolio management skills along with the practical knowledge required in the modern investment industry. Successful candidates will therefore graduate with an MSc from a Russell Group institution and have passed Level I of the CFA qualification. Our approach of embedding much of this globally recognised qualification into our MSc programme will strengthen your employability throughout the financial services sector.

With a rigorous focus on both theory and application, you will benefit from leading edge insight and global perspective from City practitioners, building on firm foundations in quantitative skills, corporate finance, financial analysis, portfolio management, financial instruments and other critical areas.

The programme aims to provide you with a solid understanding of the interaction of finance, financial markets and securities and investment analysis. On graduation you will have a good understanding of contemporary financial principles and know how these apply to financial intermediation, savings and investment. You will also be trained in financial market applications of these theories and concepts in addition to learning how to use state-of-the-art industry analytics in your studies.

The programme is designed to provide both academic knowledge and practical skills, allowing successful candidates to find employment in the financial services industry or a regulatory body related to financial markets.
