Overview

Studying investments raises some interesting issues, such as: why do companies trade so much? Is the best investment strategy to simply track the stock market index? How should risk be measured? How should assets be priced? 

On this master's programme, you will learn about trading, portfolio management and global investment analysis, and have exposure to key financial trading software throughout.

The programme shares a common taught first semester with MSc Finance and MSc Corporate Finance before specialising in finance and investment in semesters two and three. It will give you the analytical skills to critically evaluate complex investment issues, both systematically and creatively, to improve the practice of risk and investment management. 

You will be provided with tools to evaluate issues facing financial market participants and to improve the practice of investment and risk management. Module content focuses on both the trading and portfolio management sides of finance and has a substantial focus on investment, including portfolio management, financial trading and global investment analysis.
