The financial world's demand for innovation has always been intense. Today, as the financial markets become increasingly complex, the need to understand and evaluate markets, systems and financial instruments has never been greater.
This programme is designed specifically for graduates who have just completed their undergraduate studies and want to pursue a postgraduate programme in finance. You will gain excellent specialist training in treasury and investment activities in financial markets and institutions. The programme emphasises technical skills and rigour, and you will learn the latest quantitative and econometrics skills that are increasingly important in financial services.
