Course contentThe broad course aims are to develop detailed knowledge and understanding of key investment finance and risk finance principles, including numerical and analytical techniques associated with these subject areas.
All of these will be covered in the first four core modules on this programme, namely; Data Analysis, Modern Portfolio Management, International Risk Management and Financial Derivatives. Cognitive and intellectual skills, of a subject specific nature, are embedded in all of the modules that make up this course.
The practical aspects of the learning outcomes allow students opportunities to see how it is possible to transfer financial theory, knowledge and skills into practice.

Key transferable skills and other practical skills have been interwoven between the modules.
