Course Summary

This programme equips students with the cutting-edge risk management tools and strategies used by leading financial firms and regulatory bodies. Academics who teach on this programme are at the cutting edge of their fields and draw experience from time spent at other institutions such as the Bank of England, Harvard University and UCLA. Many also have relevant industry experience. You have an interest in risk management and financial regulation. You want a career in areas such as corporate risk, compliance, consultancy, or academia. You want exemptions from the Professional Risk Manager (PRM) exams. Studying risk and investment management looks at how organisations and investors should understand, evaluate and address relevant risks to maximise the chances of their objectives being achieved.

Risk management is currently, and will continue to be, a hot spot for graduate recruitment. As many financial firms are substantially expanding their risk management functions, this Masters degree is likely to open a wide range of new and exciting career opportunities. After graduation there is a wide variety of roles available for our students, some of which will suit those with mathematical skills who wish to utilise cutting-edge quantitative modelling techniques and work in collaboration with traders to develop bespoke financial products. Other roles involve portfolio and product risk management or monitoring firm-wide business risks either in-house or as part of an external regulatory team.
