Course content

This programme provides a Master's level education with particular focus on Behavioural Finance, an interdisciplinary field which integrates psychology and financial economics. This is the first postgraduate degree in the UK with a thorough and balanced curriculum with regard to both disciplines. The study of finance and psychology progresses through the programme so that students obtain a critical grasp of core theory along with thorough knowledge, skills of application and analysis.

Professional development
Our students leave us equipped with knowledge and transferable skills that are also prized by employers outside of the traditional banking and finance sectors. Many of our graduates are currently enjoying successful careers with multinational companies, consulting firms, government agencies and regulatory organisations throughout the world. Students will also gain the knowledge and skills required to continue their studies at the doctoral level.
