Most graduates from our undergraduate finance degrees go on to work in the fast-paced world of global finance. Many join investment banks as traders, investment bankers or in sales, specialising in areas such as derivatives.
You could join a brokerage house, enter operations or consultancy, or take up postgraduate study. Your finance degree can also help you to become an accountant, auditor, financial analyst or tax advisor.
An MSc in Finance can lead to a wide choice of finance careers, including investment banking, corporate finance, accounting, hedge funds, credit risk, trading, private equity and much more.
Graduates from our three quantitative finance master’s degrees usually find employment with either large investment banks, or smaller specialist companies or boutique financial firms.
