University of Kent

Finance, Investment and Risk

The programme is well established and attracts a substantial number of applications from over 20 countries each year. The international aspect enables you to gain a deeper and wider learning experience and to benefit from networking opportunities during your studies and after graduation. The programme provides a sound understanding of the theories that underpin modern techniques in investment and risk management. The application of the theories is demonstrated in our finance lab with the aid of Bloomberg, via case studies and the use of online data bases. Regular training sessions led by experienced Bloomberg trainers help you gain valuable practice in accessing and using market data. The Bloomberg platform also provides an opportunity for virtual trading practice and competitions.
