Our MSc Corporate Finance programme is aimed at students who wish to prepare for a career in the treasury department of a large company or for the corporate finance team of an investment bank. It would also prepare students for a management consultancy role with a finance focus or an advisory role with an accounting or professional services company.

This is an applied master’s programme that provides students with knowledge and skills to work in corporate finance roles. Corporate finance encompasses diverse topics such as mergers and acquisitions, issuing capital, cash management, corporate payout policy, managing foreign exchange exposure and executive compensation.

You will use our Trading Room, incorporating Thomson-Reuters Eikon financial trading software, which provides the platform for many of the computer lab sessions. This enables you to practically apply concepts learned during the programme.
