If you are looking for a rigorous and comprehensive introduction to the tools and skills that you need to thrive in modern financial services, then this course is for you. You will graduate with a skill set that spans several technical and analytical areas and will help you maximise your career potential. We have developed this course, and we refine it every year, in collaboration with real individuals and firms operating in the quickly changing finance environment. They know what the industry needs, and we know how to provide it. Trinitys MSc Finance is accredited by the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute; the Professional Risk Managers International Organisation (PRMIA); and the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association who have recognised the academic rigour and industry-relevant skills taught to students. It is the only course worldwide with this unique triple accreditation.
The programme is assessed based on a combination of assigned coursework, written examination, a group project and a capstone assignment. The course will be composed of a set of 12 taught modules (6 of which are compulsory and 6 of which are chosen from an extensive range of electives) and a project. The research project is the culmination of your degree, allowing you to demonstrate and apply the techniques and knowledge acquired from the taught modules to a problem of real world academic or managerial concern.
There is an option to "concentrate" further in one of the following areas: Financial Analysis, Risk Management and Energy and Environment.
Students will choose modules from a list while other modules will be compulsory. An indicative list of modules can be obtained from the course website:
* Corporate Finance
* Credit and Fixed Income Analysis
* Financial Statement Analysis
* Investment Theory
* Wealth Management
All students choose six other modules from this list:
Advanced Statement Analysis
Applied Investment Management & Trading
Asset Liability Management
Enterprise Risk Management
Equity and Bond Strategies
Management Accounting and Control
Mathematics of Contingent Claims
Risk Quantification and Measurement
Securitization and Structured Finance
Policy Issues in the Intl Economic System
** Auditing I is only available to students who have completed Financial Statement Analysis
Students pursuing the General strand choose any six from this list. If you opt for one of the other three strands (Financial Analysis, Risk Management, or Accounting and Finance), then three of the modules above will be compulsory, which means you will have a free choice for a further three electives.
Modules on offer may change for operational or academic reasons.
You will need to have obtained an honours degree (preferably but not necessarily in economics, business or finance) with at least a grade of upper second or equivalent. You will also need to sit the GMAT examination and ensure that the School receives the details. A GMAT of 550 or more is suggested.
If English is not your native language, or you have not undertaken your undergraduate degree through English, you will also need to satisfy the university language requirements.
Finally, if the admissions committee deems that you have insufficient preparation in management, economics, data analysis or financial statement analysis, we may require you to attend a brief course in one or more of these areas. You will have to attend and pass any examination of these courses prior to commencing the programme.

* IELTS: Grade 6.5, no bad below 6
