Course Summary


Corporate financial management and investment banking is at the core of this Masters programme and the skills acquired are sought after in the City of London. In this MSc course, you will learn through hands-on sessions and extensive use of case-study based learning and financial analysis simulations. You'll be fascinated by the exciting world of investment banking, venture capital, private equity, corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions. You will specialise in corporate investment and capital budgeting decisions, IPOs, payout policy, capital structure, financial analysis, valuation and modelling, as well as risk management. You will also gain an in-depth understanding of financial markets, securities trading and quantitative techniques. You will also be able to further specialise on a wide range of additional elective topics.

Continuing your career

There is a demand for professionals who combine an understanding of the financial markets with knowledge of the financial decisions facing companies in their day-to-day operations. Such professionals also need a clear insight into related fields including accounting, risk management, capital budgeting, debt and equity finance, financial planning, venture capital and mergers and acquisitions.

As a MSc Corporate Finance graduate, you will be well equipped to join careers in investment banks in the City of London and other international financial centres, professional services firms. This includes management consultancies and accountancy practices, and small, entrepreneurial ventures where an in-depth knowledge of finance will be of direct benefit to the owner/managers seeking to build their business.


The module provides the economic framework for understanding the global financial system and financial markets, financial institutions, market players and the importance of liquidity and price efficiency. Participants will gain an understanding of the international stock and bond markets, ?repo? markets (for borrowing/ lending on a secured basis). The module also introduces foreign exchange, money markets and futures markets (which are developed in more detail in optional Part 2 modules) and also focuses on specific markets for commodity and energy.
