Our MSc Finance and Investment programme is an applied master’s degree that equips you with knowledge and skills to work in within investment management, investment banking and related careers. It aims to provide graduates with appropriate tools to evaluate issues facing financial market participants and to improve the practice of investment and risk management.
Studying investments raises some interesting issues, such as; why do companies trade so much? Is the best investment strategy to simply track the stock market index? How should risk be measured? How should assets be priced? The programme focuses on both the trading and portfolio management sides of finance. It has a substantial focus on investment within core modules, including portfolio management, financial trading and global investment analysis. These draw on the cutting edge research expertise of our School staff.
