  • Course description
    This course is designed to provide you with expertise in international finance and enable you to pursue a career within finance. Whilst having a strong disciplinary base in international finance, students will draw on other cognate disciplines including accounting and economics, and so be able to work with specialists in other areas and to present findings and analysis to non-specialists. The degree is open to individuals with no detailed prior knowledge of international finance. To that extent the programme can provide you with a career change vehicle if you are currently engaged in work or study outside international finance.

    Students can study for one semester at CERAM in the science and technology business park at Sophia Antipolis, Nice, France.

You will use appropriate computer software and are expected to develop a high degree of competence in data handling and analysis. The use of practical examples and student experience are emphasised.
