Investment Management

This programme provides students with a highquality education that is attuned to the current needs of investment and finance professionals, combining a rigorous theoretical approach to investment theory with the practical tools to solve real-life investment problems. Students learn the analytical, decision-making, problem-solving, risk mitigation and technical financial skills needed to thrive in an increasingly complex global financial environment. Students understand each stage of the investment management process and be able to make informed decisions. While our compulsory modules give students a core understanding of investment management, the elective modules allows them to tailor learning based on the student's own interests or intended career path. The dissertation then allows students to investigate one area of investment theory or practice in detail, under the supervision of a member of our Finance and Accounting group.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a Bachelors degree (UK 2.1 or above) or equivalent qualification from a recognised British or overseas university in a related subject (including accounting, banking, business, economics or finance). If an applicant's Bachelors degree is not in a subject related to the course, some relevant work experience would be an advantage. Higher level professional qualifications may also be accepted. Each applicant is assessed on their own merit. Students whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 or equivalent (with a minimum 6.0 in each component).
