What you will study on the MSc Banking and Finance ?
Our modules are specifically structured to give you plenty of time to utilise large amounts of data and explore complex subjects to their fullest. To begin with the course will equip you with the theory and practice needed to communicate and evaluate empirical work, as well as giving you valuable training in specialist databases and software packages. You will then move on to explore relevant theories such as financial derivative products, international financial regulation, financial risk management and key aspects of corporate finance, as well as how to apply them to practical situations in the financial sector.
Now with the skills and knowledge to research and disseminate financial data to support arguments and draw valuable conclusions you will embark on an original dissertation research project. This is a chance for you to extend your knowledge of a selected topic and to apply it to the formulation and design of a substantive investigation.
