Months of entry
Taught by professionals with extensive industry experience and high academic qualifications, the MSc Finance with Specialisations will prepare you for work in multicultural, globalised financial and banking organisations.
The programme offers three specialisations:
- Risk Management
You will gain a thorough understanding of the various fields that make up the finance industry, as well as learning practical skills for your future career.
We simulate the real-life experience of working in finance through training on the Thomson-Reuters platform, and guest lectures from industry specialists. We also use case studies of current live companies of interest, and you will participate in a case study competition, where your final valuation is presented to a panel of experts.
MSc Finance with Trading Specialisation
The trading specialisation provides you with the required knowledge and practical experience for a career in trading or asset management. The ‘virtual’ trading exercise that can last up to two months along with a MSc dissertation topic in trading, asset management or hedge funds provides the calling cards (‘track record’ and in-depth research study) to present to potential employers.
MSc Finance with Banking Specialisation
The aim of this specialisation is to give you the skills in understanding, analysing and critically examining the purpose, principles and fundamental concepts of today’s financial markets, instruments and institutions, with particular emphasis on banking and its changing nature. The examination of these institutions is situated within the context of globalisation and international markets.
MSc Finance with Risk Management Specialisation
The elective module of this specialisation is designed for you to critically understand the theory behind fixed income securities and their derivatives and how it is applied or not applied in the practical world. You will be introduced to all the necessary tools that enable you to understand and solve the problems involved in the fixed income arena.
