Master of Finance is an interdisciplinary programme that aims to provide motivated individuals with cutting-edge training in financial theory and the necessary mathematical, statistical and computer training to enable them to compete in a challenging local and global financial environment.
While quantitative rigour is an important feature of the Master of Finance, the programme emphasises the practical applications of advancements in knowledge. Its statistical and mathematical training focus on offering the necessary quantitative background for understanding modern financial theories. Its financial training stresses the economic concepts underlying the development of powerful financial models and also their risk-management implications. Its computational training emphasises the practical transformation of these theories into tools commonly used by arbitrageurs, hedgers, speculators, portfolio managers, risk managers and regulators. The programme as a whole is designed to give students a competitive advantage in the application and management of the latest financial technologies in the broadest context: investment and commercial banking, unit-trust and portfolio management, insurance, corporate and project financing, brokerage, risk management, and financial planning.
Candidates may concentrate in the area of Corporate Finance, Risk Management, Financial Engineering or Financial Technology by completing the relevant core courses and electives in the concentration areas. They may also choose to take a double major in any two out of the four areas by completing the relevant core courses and electives in the concentration areas. Up to two elective courses may be taken from other taught postgraduate programmes offered by the Faculty.
