With a focus on your future international business career, our professionally accredited course provides practical knowledge and experience of the skills and tools used by financial service professionals in the City of London and other leading financial centres.
We cover traditional areas of study, such as portfolio fund management, stock picking and bond market analysis. You can also apply for a company internship (subject to availability), which has seen past students undertake workplace projects for National Bank Financial Markets, Canada.
Our strong industry links with major employers like HSBC and Barclays ensure course validity is maintained and takes account of the changing nature of financial markets in recent years. For example, we have recently introduced new modules on Foreign Exchange markets and revised our Fund management module.
All our finance courses feature innovative, interactive teaching designed to embed professional skills. You can practise trading on our Trading Floor, which incorporates the best analytical, news and data platforms. You can also gain accreditation in the use of the industry-standard Thomson-Reuters Eikon and Bloomberg financial databases.
