The practical, theoretical and numerical skills learnt through the programme, as well as the global perspective that will be gained through classroom learning and discussion, will leave you well qualified for a range of finance related professions. We expect graduates to take up positions with companies like the Big 4, with investment and commercial banks; market and consumer research centres; fund management firms; energy utilities and consultancies; as well as with public sector departments responsible for finance sector, energy and climate-change policy.
You will need a UK first-class or 2:1 honours degree in one of the subjects below, or an equivalent overseas qualification.
An undergraduate degree in accounting, finance, business or economics is normally required.
Applicants with an Honours degree in a non-related subject will also be considered, but will need to demonstrate a high standard of ability and motivation for the programme.

The programme allows you to mix different areas of finance or specialise in:
- Corporate Finance
- Energy Markets
- Finance & Investment
You will take four core courses in the first term (Sep-Dec) and one more in the second term (Jan-May). In the second term you will also be able to choose to specialise either in: Corporate Finance, Energy Markets, or Investment. Alternatively you can choose a mixture of electives without specialising. The final dissertation is written over the summer term (June-Aug) and is overseen by an academic supervisor. The course is structured to allow you to gain a strong foundation in finance, whilst allowing you to specialise and tailor your studies towards your chosen career path through the choices you make for your second Semester.
