This programme provides a firm foundation in Finance, Financial Economics and Empirical Finance. The MSc is specifically designed to support career entry and development in the financial sectors, government agencies and to higher education. The programme provides a solid grounding in modern finance and economics with a particular emphasis on techniques and models and their application to real world problems.
The MSc Finance has received recognition by the CFA Institute for its Affiliation Program, which is a global association of investment professionals that offers the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) designation. Affiliated status is granted to institutions whose degree programmes incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK). This provides a solid grounding in the CBOK, which positions students well should they plan to sit the CFA exams.
The CFA qualification is a globally recognised industry designation and affiliated universities are seen as a desirable postgraduate destination, offering programmes that provide a strong foundation in all aspects of finance as well as a practical knowledge of the finance sector.
Recognition by the CFA Institute demonstrates the ability of the MSc Finance to align with professional practice, thereby enhancing the employability of its students.
