Overview

Working in investment and risk means playing a crucial role in determining financial, safety and security risks and spotting investment opportunities for a business. It requires detailed knowledge of the workings of enterprise and the ability to keep your cool in a pressured environment.

Study the Finance, Investment and Risk with Industrial Placement programme from Kent Business School to gain a strong knowledge of financial, risk and investment management principles and techniques, and the confidence necessary to work the trading floor via our real-life simulator, The Bloomberg Lab.

Taking a 12-month industrial placement allows you to gain work experience in the UK or overseas as part of your Master's. While the placements are self-sought, the School offers support through extra-curricular engagement with our dedicated placements team. Opting for this course with a placement takes the length of your course to up to two years.
