M.Sc. Finance & Investment Management

University of Aberdeen | Aberdeen , United Kingdom
This established programme has enabled many students to achieve their finance career or PhD ambitions over the years. It has now been revised for 2013/14 to give students the opportunity to take the leading professional qualification, CFA level1.

Description

Advertisement

Many students of the course in the past have finished the MSc and then had to take CFA exams as soon as they commenced employment. Attaining this qualification whilst doing the MSc will put graduates of the programme ahead of others competing for jobs in the finance industry and mean they have less professional exams to take once they are working.

The course is designed to maximise students chances of being successful in the CFA exam with six weeks of the programme dedicated to this and supported by professional finance trainers, who work for many of the leading finance companies in London and around the world. Those students who do not wish to take the CFA exam have an alternative research-based programme whilst their colleagues are working on the CFA material.

The academic programme is up-to-date and provides a high level of understanding of both theoretical and numerical material. The university has market-leading financial databases (the Thomson-Reuters Eikon suite) to support both the teaching and the individual study of students. Online product certification using this database can be achieved during the course of the programme which will put any student in an advantageous position with potential employers, as they are already trained and certified.
