The Finance MSc and the Accounting and Financial Management MSc are supremely flexible: you can switch between them at an early stage if you find your interests changing.
Some of the MSc modules contribute to CFA qualifications at various levels – for details, see the individual module descriptions.
Term 3: April to September
From May to July you work solely on your Masters dissertation and progress report, with guidance from your academic supervisor.
You continue this work throughout the remainder of the summer, submitting your dissertation in September, at the end of the Masters programme.

AcF701 – Option-Implied Probability Distributions and Risk Preferences
AcF702 – Executive Compensations
AcF703 - Equity Valuation using Accounting Numbers
AcF706 – Accounting: Business Valuation using Accounting Numbers
