As there is no generally recognised professional qualification in finance, it is particularly suitable for graduates in quantitative subjects who wish to prepare for careers in the financial services sector, and it provides a suitable advanced education in finance for good graduates from a wide range of disciplines.
Many holders of the MSc are now employed in senior positions in banks and financial institutions in the UK and world-wide. Several others have entered careers in higher education and research.
