It will give students a relevant practical knowledge of finance that can be put into use straight away. Careers in finance depend upon a strong understanding of the foundations of finance, investment behaviour and the dynamic nature of finance, and the MSc will provide a strong preparation for a career in a wide variety of positions within the finance profession.
