Finance and Investment MSc

Based at our Greenwich Campus and situated within minutes of the financial centre of Canary Wharf, this programme provides rigorous coverage of finance and investment.

You should consider this programme if you are either working in or targeting a career in banking, investment or trading. It is particularly suitable if you wish to undertake a professional qualification and have a business, economics or numerate background.

The syllabus covers all key theoretical areas of finance and investment analysis. It also focuses strongly on developing analytical skills needed by the finance industry. The research project, which focuses on data analysis of financial markets, provides a key practical underpinning for the large body of theory covered.
