Content

This well-established MSc is founded on years of financial and investment expertise within the department, and on some powerful global connections with the financial sector. We focus not only on academic success but on helping students to build the broad range of specialist skills and experience that contribute to employability.

The programme runs in parallel with the globally-recognised qualification CFA Level 1, so you have the opportunity to take this leading professional qualification as part of the MSc with 6 weeks dedicated study to maximise your chances of successful completion. CFA Level 1 will open up the investment management world in more depth and set a base for what you need to know at the beginning of your career as an investment professional. You will add allure to your CV with this upgrade, plus have fewer exams to take whilst working.
