MSc in Investment Management

Cass Business School, City University

The MSc in Investment Management is founded on three principles: academic rigour, relevant knowledge and an international orientation.

You will acquire a sound knowledge of the theoretical foundations that underpin modern investment and risk management techniques. These principles are applied in practice via case studies and the use of online databases such as Bloomberg and simulators. The practical aspect is delivered with extensive input from City of London institutions. Many leading practitioners teach on the course, providing a vital link between theory and practice.

The MSc in Investment Management is a demanding course. Over a 12-month period you will cover the traditional syllabus of a general Masters degree in finance and develop extensive expertise in a range of specialised areas such as the management of equity and bond portfolios; trading techniques; asset-liability management; risk management; alternative investments; venture capital and management of foreign exchange.

An advisory panel of senior practitioners ensures that the course remains at the forefront of developments within financial markets and reflects topical and technical developments in the marketplace.

On a typical intake of around 100 students a year, a minimum of 35 nationalities will normally be represented. The international dimension of the course is further developed through the backgrounds of the resident and visiting academic faculty.
