This Masters programme offers training in the core areas of finance. It draws on recent developments in each of the subject areas with a quantitative approach to understanding the structure of financial markets and forecasting their expected movements. It will develop your understanding of theory and its practical applications as well as real-life skills, such as pricing financial derivatives and forecasting exchange rates.
In addition to providing a strong foundation for PhD research, particularly for our PhD in Quantitative Finance, this programme will prepare you for a career in financial institutions, government organisations and international organisations such as the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.
