Investment Management (MSc)

Course Description

This degree programme prepares students for entry into the fast growing and exciting investment industry. It provides a theoretical knowledge of portfolio management and quantitative finance, together with an applied set of courses looking at industry structure and trends. Students benefit from professional guest speakers drawn from the heart of the global investment industry in the City of London, only a short distance away.

CFA Integral to the academic course is the parallel study of the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA® ) programme, level 1. The two programmes support and reinforce the other, ensuring that graduates acquire both the academic and professional knowledge and qualifications required to succeed in the investment management industry. The tuition for this programme includes the candidate's registration in the June CFA Level I exam that is written just after the end of the academic year (no other sitting is supported). The tuition also includes substantial CFA teaching outside of the academic teaching.

The ICMA Centre is a CFA Program Partner; this is in recognition that this degree covers at least 70 percent of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge, the CFA Institute Ethical and Professional Standards, and other requirements.
