By the end of the Module, reflecting the Module that you will have chosen, you will be able to:

  • Have a much deeper and broader understanding of the practice of financial markets in the fields that you have selected, compared to other graduating students or even many young professionals.
  • Acquire the ability to handle sophisticated financial techniques and make robust assessments of theoretical and policy-related issues, across different topics and financial fields, thanks to the sharing of experience of  senior practitioners and top-level academics teaching the courses.
  • Develop strong new competencies and skills to be a more accomplished and creative performer in the financial sector, with the ability to progress faster to senior positions.


Customised Modules can be constructed by selecting at least 2 courses in the program, including if you so wish, focusing on risk and financial regulation, on asset valuation, or on the broader framework within which financial institutions operate.
Some courses anticipate a sufficient background in finance and/or economics, which can be obtained, for instance, through the courses of Principle of Finance and Principles of Economics. This is reviewed with you in the context of your registration to ensure that you can draw maximum benefit from the courses.
Participants may also take more than one Module per year or in successive years.
