What will you study on the MSc Investment and Finance?
The content of this course is designed to equip you with the essential techniques that are used in investment institutions and familiarise students with the practices that are followed in financial markets. This provides you with the opportunity to apply various models and reflect on your understanding of the prevailing concepts and theories in areas such as finance, risk management and investment.
For masters students, the dissertation gives you an opportunity to address a specific finance or investment issue of particular interest. To aid you in preparing for this project a number of dissertation workshops are delivered during the taught period and at the end of these workshops, you will be ready to submit a dissertation proposal.
