Program Description

MSc Financial Risk Management

The MSc Financial Risk Compliance provides comprehensive, globally focused understanding of the risk management tools, ranging from enterprise-wide risk management practices to specific techniques and requirements in the financial industry sector.

The programme provides a comprehensive introduction to the financial services industry, exploring the broader economic environment and how it influences financial markets. It provides in-depth knowledge of financial products including equities, bonds, derivatives and investment funds. It also examines types of risks faced by businesses and risk management practices within financial institutions, namely market, credit and counterparty risks.

Students will further deepen their knowledge of risk management by choosing one of the electives, ranging from buy-side risk management practices to fintech and regtech developments.

From the 4th Term (9 months of study), students may choose, subject to any applicable visa requirements, to undertake a work placement instead of a dissertation or project. The work placement is for 9 months. Students must complete 600 hours of work.

You can expand your study experience by rotating across our campus locations in London and Berlin. During your time at ULaw Business School, you can complete modules at alternative campus locations, returning to your ‘home’ campus to complete your final module. Visa restrictions and study conditions may apply, however you are supported throughout the rotation process. Contact us (study@law.ac.uk) for more information about the "Global Rotation option".
