You’ll develop research-orientated expertise in investment and risk management, banking, corporate finance and international accounting. You’ll become an expert in the cutting-edge quantitative techniques needed for in-depth empirical investigations in banking and finance. You’ll discover how to critically analyse theories and data in order to make effective, evidence-based financial decisions. And you’ll receive support and access to online resources such as Thomson Reuters including Eikon and Datastream and BankOrbis.

Working with leading academics in Norwich Business School’s highly-respected Finance Group, you’ll discover the most important recent developments in financial research. Meanwhile, you’ll build the analytical skills needed to make your own contribution to the latest thinking in the field. In our computer laboratories, you’ll learn how to implement and test the theories you have learned.
