Course content

Deregulation, globalisation, and the effect of the worldwide economic crisis across international stock markets have led to a growing interest in the subject of finance. Professionals in today's market need to be adept at managing investments of both a financial and economic nature, and use sound and informed judgement in order to make crucial decisions.

Lincoln's MSc Finance degree is designed to provide a framework for consolidating and enhancing students' finance and economics skills. It offers students the ability to explore practice in the context of relevant contemporary theory and research. Students can go beyond the fundamental theories to study advanced techniques, with a focus on quantitative methods and developing critical thinking skills. The programme is both quantitative and research-orientated in nature and makes use of industry level databases such as Bloomberg.

The programme is available for either a September or February start.
