Course Summary

This is a challenging and demanding programme that covers up-to-date topics in empirical finance. If you are interested in a career in investment, financial institutions, or any other financial management-related jobs, then this degree will equip you with the required knowledge and skills. You will gain a thorough understanding of key areas of investment and finance and learn how to apply and critically assess a wide range of investment techniques as well as financial management theories.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates can pursue careers in investment, financial management and insurance. Possible professions include risk manager, corporate investment banker, or insurance underwriter. This degree can also be useful in becoming a systems analyst or chartered management accountant.
