Course Summary

Our Investment Management MSc will equip you with the knowledge and skills which you need to excel in your investment career. Studying this investment master's course offers you the opportunity to learn the tools and techniques of both investment and management, as well as how to apply them in real work situations globally.

Investment management, also known as asset management or fund management, is about managing money by investing it in a variety of asset classes including equities and bonds.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of financial and management accounting, economics, international financial markets, statistical analysis, financial modelling, investment and portfolio management and derivatives and financial risk management.

The course content covers much of the syllabus of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) qualification, giving you the opportunity to work towards an additional professional qualification while you are studying with us through the CFA Institute University Affiliation Program. If you choose this option, you will receive revision support from our faculty ahead of sitting the first examination in term three of your course. You can then sit parts two and three of the qualification after completing your course.

Modules

The module looks at both financial and management accounting. You will be provided with a thorough understanding of company accounts, how they are construed and how to interpret them. Further to this, you will look at and understand the key issues in management accounting from the point of view of business leaders needing to make practical decisions in their organisation.
