Course content

Our MSc Finance is an intensive postgraduate course, designed to develop a detailed understanding of the practical application of modern finance theories in the financial world. The programme tracks the CFA syllabus and from the outset, you will take a hands-on approach to handling data and dealing with complex financial models. This degree is taught on our Peel Park campus, close to Manchester city centre, by experienced staff who are specialists in their area.

The modules on this master’s programme are designed to be of maximum relevance as they incorporate the latest developments in the financial sector, equipping you with the skillset to work in all areas of the industry. You will gain the technological skills and independent thinking abilities essential to working alongside companies, and the confidence and self-esteem to progress to senior roles. In addition, the University of Salford is recognised by The Bloomberg ELP as a leader in experiential learning through the integration of Bloomberg terminal exercises in the curriculum.

You will not only master the academic theory of the finance industry but become aware of the high ethical standards expected from you as a financial specialist. You will also have the opportunity to gain experience in real-world application as we encourage you to apply your knowledge in new and unfamiliar environments when collaborating with our industry partners.
