Course content

The MSc Finance programme is research-oriented, with emphasis on providing you with the tools to solve the practical financial problems that will create value for companies and enable societies to evolve.

You will gain wide theoretical knowledge in both corporate finance and asset pricing as well as the quantitative skills that will allow you to conduct research and analyse real-world problems. The study of financial economics and banking will allow you to excel in both the finance and economics fields. Contemporary topics are integrated throughout the programme in order to better understand human behaviour in financial markets.

Throughout the programme, traditional academic modules alternate with research seminars, discussions with academic staff and visiting researchers, and meetings with representatives from the financial markets. This ensures an integrated and concrete learning environment with strong connections to the real world.

The programme is a perfect fit for individuals looking to enhance theoretical knowledge, quantitative and analytical skills and improve career opportunities in finance. It makes use of cutting-edge textbooks and the latest research and materials published in the field.

Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU masters degrees, earn a University of Liverpool degree that is recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
