Course content

This programme follows the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) syllabus, preparing students to sit for the professional CFA exams.

Your studies will cover modern finance and investment theory to provide you with solid foundations and practical business techniques so that you are fully aware of the implications and assumptions in use. You will learn to critically appreciate the limitations of modern finance and investment methodologies and to apply them in different contexts.

The programme is highly practical and makes extensive use of real-world examples to examine the application of your learning. You will work in the School’s Bloomberg trading room to develop your trading skills and in the final semester, you will work on a live industry brief, either for your own employer or with another organisation.
