About

They know what the industry needs, and we know how to provide it. The MSc Finance from Trinity College Dublin is a programme partner of 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.
