Course content

This course will teach you a systematic approach to decision-making in investment management. You’ll learn from experienced industry professionals and academics, whilst developing the skills you need to succeed in investment management or investment analysis roles within the finance industry.

This course is ideal if you’re looking to start a career in investment and private wealth management, investment banking, pension funds, insurance, or alternative investment partnerships.

You’ll learn how to use market-leading tools such as Bloomberg, with Bloomberg Market Concepts certification embedded in the course. The course is affiliated with the CFA Institute and you’ll thus have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to sit the Chartered Financial Analyst exams during your studies.

We are ranked in the top 10 for business and economics in the United Kingdom by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020.

This course combines thorough training in investment theory with the practical tools you’ll need to solve real investment problems. You’ll learn the analytical, decision-making, problem-solving, risk mitigation and technical skills you need to thrive in an increasingly complex global financial environment.

Our compulsory modules will give you an understanding of core investment concepts and are based on the CFA curriculum, while our optional modules allow you to tailor your learning to your own interests or your planned career path.

By the time you graduate, you’ll understand the investment management process and be able to make informed decisions at every stage.
