If you’re interested in a career in finance then this course will equip you with the managerial skills to succeed within the sector, no matter what your undergraduate background.
We have developed the programme in response to market demand for graduates with strong financial awareness plus the essential skills to function as effective managers, both within the financial sector and across a range of multinational organisations.
The course is regularly refreshed to keep pace with advances in the financial sector, and is benchmarked against the syllabus of the CFA Institute. Current study themes include investment and risk management, sustainable strategic decision making, corporate financial management and international financial markets.
Facilities include a trading suite equipped with Bloomberg Terminals, which are used by traders globally. The suite provides you with access to the latest data, information and analytics to support your studies.
You will also undertake a number of professional development modules to give you a competitive advantage in the jobs market, in terms of self-development and leadership.
If you have an undergraduate background in a quantitative subject, and aspire to a more specialist career within financial research, then you might be interested in MSc International Finance and Investment.
One of the key challenges facing any student planning to undertake a business-related degree is how to compete in the job market with business graduates around the world who are also trying to ignite their business career. We know from experience and talking to employers that international awareness is a key differentiator.
Many of our students have already taken the first step by travelling hundreds or thousands of miles to study in an unfamiliar environment. However the international exchange option takes that to the next level. We are developing exchange opportunities in Asia, Europe and South America that will give students the prospect to create a truly unique selling proposition to future employers.
Students spend one semester studying business (taught and assessed in English) in another international domain. In some cases there will be an opening for basic level study of the language and culture of the host region.
You will leave Newcastle Business School highly knowledgeable about the theory and practice of international finance and investment, with the ability to act and think strategically, well equipped to begin the next stage of your career.
