Overview

This master’s course has been designed to teach the syllabuses of the CFA or FRM exams at Level I and II, offering excellent preparation for an international career in finance, banking or risk management.

This course integrates both the CFA and FRM exam curricula into a single master’s programme, specialising in traditional financial analysis, alternative investment or financial risk-management. This programme is highly professionally relevant, producing well-equipped, career-ready graduates.

Studying full- or part-time, you’ll cover the majority of the curriculum required to pass the rigorous professional finance exams which are most in demand from global financial institutions – namely certification with the CFA Institute or the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP). If you wish to sit for these qualifications on graduation, you’ll need to register and complete the final exams with the relevant professional bodies.

Why Choose This Program?

This is a challenging, intensive and fast-paced course which demands a great deal from its students. It simulates the operational environment of the finance sector, helping you to build the skills you need to work strategically within it.

The MSc Global Finance course offers the opportunity to develop the knowledge required for entry-level positions with leading global banks and financial services and investment firms. Whether you’ve just completed your undergraduate studies or have been working for some time, it will prepare you to sit for CFA or FRM certification – both of which are recognised as gold standards in professional finance.

The course is taught by highly qualified tutors who have solid career experience in banking, asset management and portfolio management, and who maintain strong connections with industry and with the professional associations. Your learning will be very much practical and applied, with the opportunity to meet with industry through networking, guest lectures, field trips and either an internship with an employer or a consultancy project with a real client.
