Course content

The MSc Investment Management has been created to reflect the latest developments in finance theory and in the investment finance industry. Even before the 2008 Financial Crisis, investment finance was becoming increasingly globalised, complex and reliant on information technology to create and manage financial asset portfolios, private equity, and hedge funds.

Our programme covers all aspects of the finance and wealth management industry, such as corporate finance, entrepreneurial finance, financial and managerial accounting, portfolio theory, and investment analysis and management. Our programme also incorporates quantitative and computational methods applied to portfolio analysis and management, the theory and use of securities and derivatives, and to the accounting and financial management of wealth funds. Entrepreneurial finance is an important aspect of our programme, since many traders are now either self-employed or work in small trading companies.

Information for international students

We understand that moving to another country can be a very daunting prospect for many students, especially if it is their first time away from their family, which is why we make it our priority to ensure that international students feel welcome, settled and part of the community.

The University has over 3,600 students from more than 100 nationalities, and we encourage students to embrace the cultures of others as well as sharing their own. Events such as ‘World Food Day’ and our highly anticipated ‘International Day’ enable our students to celebrate and promote the culture and traditions of their home countries.

Dubai is one of the most culturally diverse places in the world, and there are so many things to do and see! In this section, students can find useful contact numbers and websites, information about the UAE, things to do in Dubai and more…
