The modules we offer are therefore both more academically advanced and more practice-oriented than those you will find on a typical UK Masters programme in finance. 

To take you swiftly to the next stage in your career, the Advanced Financial Analysis MSc involves expert teaching from Lancaster’s Department of Accounting and Finance.
