The MSc Finance and Economics is designed to equip students with the specialist skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a career at a high level in the financial sector. In addition, the programme provides the necessary training to undertake research in the area of finance at a leading university.
The programme is full time and lasts for 12 months, with nine months of taught modules between October and June of the academic year, followed by three months of research and preparation of a masters dissertation, to be completed by the end of September.
The topic for research is chosen with the advice and guidance of members of the academic staff. Our MSc students usually form a lively and cohesive group which plays an active role in the academic and social life of the Division.
The teaching is organised into two semesters, each of 12 weeks’ duration. Three modules are taken in each semester, giving an average of 10 to 12 hours per week of lectures and classes.
