Course content


The MSc in Computational Finance programme is a technically-oriented Masters in Finance programme, which is designed to equip graduates from cognate backgrounds with the combination of advanced technical knowledge and industry-facing skills which employers increasingly require of graduate hires in the international financial services industry. The MSc in Computational Finance programme is highly regarded by employers, due in no small part to its emphasis on a ‘learning-by-doing’ teaching philosophy, an approach which has been made possible by affording our students frequent exposure to both lecture and workshop classes in Ireland’s first campus-based (Bloomberg-equipped) Trading Floor, which is housed in the new Kemmy Business School building. Employment prospects for graduates of the programme are exceptional. Please refer to the Graduate Profile tab for some recent examples of graduate employment
