The second semester of Finance programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is flexible allowing you to select courses which either combine different areas of finance or which allow you to tailor your studies to suit your career ambitions in one of the three following areas:
- Corporate Finance
- Energy Finance and Markets
- Finance & Investment
The School's location in the UK's second largest financial centre allows us to attract visiting speakers including a range of analysts from the key financial institutions and fund management houses.
You are able to interact with leading figures from many major companies; this is particularly evident in the dissertation, which offers an invaluable opportunity to collaborate on a topic that has real, of-the-minute industry relevance.
The School is a recognised partner institution by the Chartered Financial Analysis (CFA) Institute.
The practical, theoretical and numerical skills learnt through the programme, as well as the global perspective that will be gained through classroom learning and discussions, will leave you well qualified for a range of finance related professions.
We expect graduates to take up positions with companies like the Big 4, with investment and commercial banks; market and consumer research centres; fund management firms; energy utilities and consultancies, as well as with public sector departments responsible for the finance sector, energy and climate-change policy.
