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. Trinity’s 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:
