Overview

This MSc Finance programme offered by the Coventry University aims to provide you with specialist financial skills and knowledge – everything from derivatives, portfolio theory and risk management, to financial modelling, governance and ethical finance. This specialist knowledge is supported by recognitions or accreditations from some of the UK’s leading professional financial organisations including the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Society of the UK and the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further information.

An attractive feature of the MSc Finance is its flexibility, with three pathway options available in your second semester. These pathways are designed to allow you to focus on an area of most interest to you, whether that be investment management, banking, or a more general finance pathway. These pathway options should allow you to tailor this degree to an area of finance that most interests you.

Career prospects 

This master’s level course can help lead to careers in financial services, corporate finance, fund management, treasury or banking and insurance sectors, upon successful completion. Equally, the skills developed upon graduating, should allow you to pursue a potential future career in the public and private sector, in financial management or in management more generally.

Typical roles may include financial planners and controllers, treasurers, stock brokers, commodities traders, cash and fund managers, insurance adjusters and other positions in banking and finance. Past graduates have gone on to work for the likes of HSBC, Boeing and S&P, whilst many others have decided to continue their academic studies in the form of a PhD.
