In addition to core subjects including financial theory, financial markets and corporate finance, you’ll examine in detail financial modelling, investment strategies, performance evaluation, risk assessment, investment valuation and asset pricing. Further, you’ll develop your quantitative and problem-solving skills and ability to critically evaluate and deliver mid- and long-term strategic solutions. You can choose to study one year full-time or 16 months full-time with a professional placement. As global capital and money markets grow, so does the demand for professionals with specialist skills and competencies in finance and investment. Your Brunel Masters will give you that and make you a sought-after job candidate to employers across the industry.
