Course content

Find solutions to the practical problems that market practitioners and policy-makers face.

Develop innovative risk and pricing models and investigate various corporate finance issues facing both public and private companies.

We also examine the roles of banks, venture capital and other financial intermediaries in global financial markets. You’ll work with expert faculty who frequently act as consultants for banks, asset managers, international financial organisations, stock exchanges and governments.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19.
