Course Summary

UCL's Finance MSc covers the key aspects of finance underpinning effective functioning within the financial sector. It engages with the theory and application of core concepts in corporate finance, portfolio management, and mergers and divestments, and other essentials. Students will develop transferable skills to enable them to understand, analyse, and interpret hard-edged data, communicate effectively, and assume leadership roles. Students will acquire a firm grasp of fundamental finance-related concepts, and be able to apply their knowledge to practical tasks by, for example, utilising mathematical models to predict market behaviour. Graduates will acquire the skills and knowledge required to work in any of the major financial centres from New York, to London, to Tokyo - indeed, globally.

This programme draws upon the combined strengths of two highly-rated departments: UCL School of Management and UCL Economics. Academic staff's knowledge and expertise combine to provide a repository for students to draw upon as they identify and respond to challenges and issues located in real-world scenarios. The scope of the financial industry at national and international level is extensive, and includes a range of types of banks, investment and hedge funds, asset management companies, insurance companies, rating agencies, brokers, and large, medium and boutique financial companies specialising in generic and bespoke products and services. The aim of the Finance MSc is to prepare individuals for effective roles in any of these different organisations within the financial industry.
