The programme is right for you if you wish to build a career in finance and if you have the desire and the commitment to immerse yourself in the challenging world of modern financial analysis and practice. There are no specific requirements as to the subject of your first degree, though we do expect some exposure to quantitative analysis at university level.
The programme enables you to pursue in-depth studies in one of the following four concentrations, based on a common foundation of shared core modules.
The 3-day model (21 months plus thesis)
- Capital Markets
- Corporate Finance
- Risk Management
- Financial Accounting & Advisory
The Master of Finance follows a unique time model that permits you to work part-time whilst pursuing your full-time Master’s degree. We call this the “3-day model”. Our students typically attend classes three days each week, namely either “Monday, Tuesday and Saturday” or “Thursday, Friday and Saturday”. This leaves you with three free work days during the week for self-study or part-time employment.
