Project Management, Finance and Risk

This postgraduate Project Management, Finance and Risk programme is for those pursuing or planning a career in managing the introduction of capital goods or applying the latest project management techniques to complex projects. It is particularly suited to students with a scientific or financial engineering background as we cover quantitative risk assessment in depth, which requires an aptitude for measuring and analysing data. MSc Project Management, Finance and Risk gives you a foundation in quantitative risk assessment and decision-making under uncertain conditions, coupled with classical engineering economics and financial engineering. Consider the risks contained within a project such as the Euro Tunnel. Two governments sponsoring the project and nine billion pounds of finance ring-fenced through a special purpose company to complete it. Will it be finished on time and will it secure the revenues to service the debt? These are the kinds of questions we address on this programme. MSc Project Management, Finance and Risk gives you a foundation in quantitative risk assessment and decision-making under uncertain conditions, coupled with classical engineering economics and financial engineering. From analysing indecision within games theory to rebuilding a country's infrastructure, we explore the drivers in which businesses operate, and the challenges and opportunities that project managers face. Bringing in expertise from the Sir John Cass Business School, together with people from industry and the banking sector, we pool diverse skill sets to solve complex problems.
