Overview

Masters in Finance and Risk Management places an emphasis on real-world experiences to equip you with the skills you’ll need for a successful career in financial risk management.

The MSc Finance and Risk Management is a Financial Risk Manager partner of the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP) and the course covers at least 70% of the GARP body of knowledge along with 100% of the ethics and professional conduct learning objectives required for the FRM Part I examination or FRM Part II examination.

By aligning the course with the FRM curriculum, rigorous academic learning is coupled with practitioner-driven insight and certification. Through this combination, students are better prepared to succeed in the challenging field of risk management.

As you study, you’ll acquire a broad knowledge of finance, financial theory and the practical methods used to analyse financial data. Further specialist knowledge and analytical skills are developed in financial risk management, including how to identify, measure and manage a broad range of financial risk types including operational risk, foreign exchange risk, liquidity risk and market risk.
