This course provides a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in the key aspects of investment and risk finance, delivered in an intensive learning environment. Students will learn how to apply the knowledge and theory you have gained in class to real-world problems facing the international financial services industry and the corporate financial management community. This practical application of investment and risk principles is one of the main strengths of this program.
The learning and skills development is integrated with resources available in our Financial Markets Suite (FMS), a state-of-the-art virtual trading room environment. The FMS is interfaced with the Bloomberg system, a leading source of economics and capital markets information available to the global professional financial community. The provision of this Bloomberg resource, along with the academic and professional career development opportunities are the main reasons why our students prefer to select this program.
The course consists of core modules that help students acquire the ability to perform quantitative investment and risk analyses on a variety of financial instruments and structured products. Students also learn how to use capital market products in both investment and risk finance applications. As a result, students will develop good transferable skills and solve financial problems in a group setting.
