Course content

If you are looking for a rigorous and comprehensive
introduction to the tools and skills that you need to thrive
in modern financial services, then this course is for you. You
will graduate with a skill set that spans several technical
and analytical areas and will help you maximise your career
potential. We have developed this course, and we refine it every
year, in collaboration with real individuals and firms operating
in the quickly changing finance environment. They know what
the industry needs, and we know how to provide it. Trinity’s
M.Sc. Finance is accredited by the Chartered Financial Analyst
(CFA) Institute; the Professional Risk Managers’ International
Organisation (PRMIA); and the Chartered Alternative Investment
Analyst (CAIA) Association who have recognised the academic
rigour and industry-relevant skills taught to students. It is the
only course worldwide with this unique triple accreditation.
The programme is assessed based on a combination of
assigned coursework, written examination, a group project
and a capstone assignment. The course will be composed of
a set of 12 taught modules (6 of which are compulsory and
6 of which are chosen from an extensive range of electives)
and a project. The research project is the culmination of
your degree, allowing you to demonstrate and apply the
techniques and knowledge acquired from the taught modules
to a problem of real world academic or managerial concern.
There is an option to “concentrate” further in one of the
following areas: Financial Analysis, Risk Management and
Energy and Environment.
Students will choose modules from a list while other modules
will be compulsory. An indicative list of modules can be
obtained from the course website: www.tcd.ie/business/
