Program Description

Are you interested in a career in a finance profession? By studying our MSc Finance you should be able to gain the skills and knowledge needed, with pathways that allow you to focus on a particular area of interest.

By design, the MSc Finance is a specialist course that seeks to educate and prepare you for a range of careers within the finance professions, upon successful completion. This course aims to provide you with specialist financial skills and knowledge – everything from derivatives, portfolio theory and risk management, to financial modelling, governance and ethical finance.

This specialist knowledge is supported by recognitions or accreditations from some of the UK’s leading professional financial organisations including the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Society of the UK and the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further information.

An attractive feature of the MSc Finance is its flexibility, with three pathway options available in your second semester. These pathways are designed to allow you to focus on an area of most interest to you, whether that be investment management, banking, or a more general finance pathway. These pathway options should allow you to tailor this degree to an area of finance that most interests you.

Regardless of the pathway studied, this course seeks to develop enterprising and globally-orientated postgraduates, upon successful completion, who are equipped to cope in a financial world of constant transformation and increasing complexity.

Offering the chance to gain an international student experience, a range of internship opportunities (subject to availability, competitive application, meeting any applicable visa requirements and additional fees may apply) and the opportunity for practical integration between theory and practice, the course aims to help you to develop the skills most valued by employers.

Rated ‘Excellent’ in 2019 by Eduniversal, an annual ranking of business schools in more than 150 countries, Coventry Business School offers industry-standard facilities, including our Trading Floor. Using a range of market-leading software and data packages, such as Bloomberg, Datastream, Fitch-Connect and Thompson Reuters Eikon, you will have the opportunity to practise financial, statistical and econometric analysis, and the opportunity to explore how to interpret, evaluate and communicate financial information in real-life business situations.
