Our Masters in Finance programme is more relevant and prized than ever. Major financial markets are going through their greatest changes since the Great Depression, 80 years ago. Events have revealed the current lack of skills and experience in the international investment-management industry. As a result our Masters in Finance graduates are in demand, because the finance professions need people who understand the business and economic environment in which they operate, know in detail the models they implement and can skilfully apply the results in practice The syllabus for our Masters in Finance programme is highly contemporary, and driven by current best practice. While we continue to use well-established techniques that have stood the test of time, Masters in Finance students also examine in detail the most up-to-date developments in financial markets concerning, for example, credit-risk management and derivatives, money-market behaviour and hedge-fund management.
