This postgraduate programme is designed to be completed in 12 months of part-time study and is formatted to be compatible with professional schedules and is offered in Asia - from Singapore - and in Europe - from London.

The MSc in Risk & Investment Management is a one-year part-time programme, heavily drawn on the expertise of EDHEC-Risk Institute and dialogue with high level practitioners in order to prepare participants for the challenges facing the investment management industry. Spanning traditional, alternative, and structured investments, and drawing on the latest scientific advances, the programme focuses on dynamic asset allocation and advanced risk management techniques and on the integration of investor needs and constraints in the design of novel solutions for institutional, private and retail investment management.
