On this course our students study a number of finance modules from both a theoretical and practical point of view, through academic reading and use of simulation software and powerful financial databases. A study of research methods in a finance context prepares the students to undertake their own chosen research project in an area of finance with supervision from expert academic staff. Students also have the opportunity to choose an optional module in an area of specialism such as Islamic banking and finance or financial mathematics.
