The Finance programme from University College London (UCL) engages with the theory and application of core concepts in a variety of topics including corporate finance, portfolio management, asset pricing, derivatives, behavioural finance or mergers and divestments, and other essentials. Students will develop transferable skills to help them assume leadership roles.
Students will acquire a firm grasp of fundamental finance-related concepts, and be able to apply their knowledge to practical tasks by, for example, utilising mathematical models to predict market behaviour. Graduates will acquire the skills and knowledge required to work in any of the major financial centres from New York, to London, to Tokyo - indeed, globally.
The scope of the financial industry at national and international level is extensive, and includes a range of types of banks, investment and hedge funds, asset management companies, insurance companies, rating agencies, brokers, and large, medium and boutique financial companies specialising in generic and bespoke products and services.
