Overview

Financial systems are highly complex and constantly evolving. On this intensive, 12-month course you will gain the skills to understand the financial system now and in the future. You will build a sound theoretical and practical grounding in banking and finance, equipping yourself with the skills needed to excel in business or in research. You’ll graduate as someone who is not only highly skilled, but also an independent and critical thinker, able to make their own decisions when faced with complex problems.

You will develop research-orientated expertise in investment and risk management, banking, corporate finance and governance and international accounting. You’ll also become expert in the cutting-edge quantitative techniques needed for in-depth empirical investigations in banking and finance. You’ll also discover how to critically analyse theories and data in order to make effective, evidence-based financial decisions.

Working with leading academics, you’ll discover the most important recent developments in financial research. Meanwhile, you’ll build the analytical skills needed to make your own contribution to the latest thinking in the field.

In our computer laboratories, you’ll learn how to implement and test the theories you’ve learned. You’ll also gain first-hand experience of applying the tools used by leading traders, financial analysts and investment bankers in their day-to-day work.

Once you’ve built a firm foundation during your taught modules, you’ll begin your dissertation. Here you’ll be able to explore a problem of your choosing, with the guidance of an academic advisor. This opportunity enables you to not only tackle an issue you think is important, but also to develop the research and analytical skills you’ll need to keep innovating throughout your career. You’ll learn how to do your own independent research, how to approach issues from a rigorous, scientific perspective and how to analyse complex challenges. You’ll also discover how to make decisions based on evidence and how to use literature and research to solve problems. All of which will be essential in your career.

You might be coming to the Master’s in Banking and Finance from the University of East Anglia with a particular idea or problem you’d like to investigate. This could be something you’ve identified in your previous studies, or during your time working in industry. For example, you might be interested in exploring the relationship between corporate governance and firm performance or the impact of news on financial markets. Alternatively, you might be excited about the new areas for inquiry you’ll discover during your taught modules and independent study.
