Course content

MSc Risk Management & Financial Engineering is a highly quantitative programme tailored to high calibre and technically-minded graduates wanting a deeper, more analytical study of risk management and financial engineering than is found in general finance programmes.

The programme is accredited by the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association (PRMIA) and the School offers students on this programme the opportunity to attend PRMIA events, have access to its resources and receive considerable discounts on PRMIA exams.

In September you will study five foundation modules to introduce the tools of modern finance and enhance your career development skills.

You’ll take six core modules which are the backbone of our programme, providing you with a solid knowledge base in each subject area. Each module builds on previous experience while introducing new and challenging disciplines.

You will also receive training in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), choose from a variety of electives and undertake a final project.
