By the end of the course, you will have the skills necessary to use advanced tools and quantitative techniques to appraise financial opportunities.
This course is part of our Finance MSc programme. All students complete the same core finance modules, then from the end of the first term you will be able to tailor the course to your individual strengths and career aspirations through option modules and the option to specialise in one of five areas.
A postgraduate qualification from Brighton Business School will help you to specialise and stand out in today's highly competitive job market.
Our Economics and Finance MSc opens up a wide range of career paths. Many graduates will find employment in the financial sector but the course is an excellent preparation for a career in economic consultancy, the public sector or international development institutions.
