It is the only course worldwide with this unique triple accreditation.
The programme is assessed based on a combination of assigned coursework, written examination, a group project and a capstone assignment. The course will be composed of a set of 12 taught modules (6 of which are compulsory and 6 of which are chosen from an extensive range of electives) and a project. The research project is the culmination of your degree, allowing you to demonstrate and apply the techniques and knowledge acquired from the taught modules to a problem of real world academic or managerial concern.
There is an option to "concentrate" further in one of the following areas: Financial Analysis, Investments and Markets, Risk Management and Accounting and Finance.
