This prestigious course will prepare you for a career in corporations and government bodies involved with stock markets, project investment and the finance industry.

The core modules of the first semester offer a solid grounding in finance, while the second semester introduces two optional modules enabling you to pursue interests of your own. 

Content and structure

The Finance MSc is one year full time or two years part time. Plus the dissertation module.

You'll need to take and pass eight taught modules over two semesters, four in each. These are examined at the end of each semester. Six are core modules, while the other two are chosen from option modules.

After you've completed the second semester's taught modules, there is a 10-week period to write your dissertation. We'll support you through dissertation workshops and input from your supervisor. To be awarded the Finance MSc you will have to pass the examinations and complete the dissertation to the required standard.

In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
