The MSc Finance and Investment is designed for graduates interested in following a career in investment analysis or portfolio management. Based upon a programme developed over 40 years ago, the programme provides excellent training for employment in the financial sector. It will prepare you for the challenge of a career in finance by providing a broad knowledge base, combined with extensive practical sessions, to help develop your confidence and ability.
You can study the programme in an intensive nine-month format, or over 12 months. With both formats you will gain a firm foundation in research methods for investment and finance, investment analysis, financial management, and financial instruments. If studying over nine months, you then select six or seven optional modules. With the 12-month format you will undertake four optional modules in addition to the investment analysis dissertation.
In addition, non-assessed intensive computer training covering Thomson Reuters Datastream and other financial databases and software systems, is incorporated into relevant modules.
The School has an agreement with the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) which confers the status of CISI Centre of Excellence upon the Xfi Centre for Finance and Investment. As a student on the MSc Finance and Investment you will be eligible for the award of the CISI Diploma and will therefore receive a globally recognised, professional certificate in addition to your Masters degree.
