Lancaster Launches an MSc in Advanced Financial Analysis

One-year program based in London; will prepare students for level II CFA qualification

Lancaster University Management School has announced that it will launch a new MSc program in Advanced Financial Analysis.

The program is one year long and will be offered in London. It will prepare students to take the second level of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) qualification upon completion. It will be open to students who have already passed the Level I CFA exam.

The MSc will be comprised of a mix of mostly quantitative curriculum. The core courses include "Fund Management," "Financial Modelling and Analysis," and "Advanced Investment Risk Management," among others. Although the majority of the program will be delivered in class, one module will take place online. Also included will be CFA Level II test prep and a module called "Personal Development for Careers in Finance," which will help students fine-tune their career strategies.

In addition to having passed the Level I CFA exam, successful applicants will also be expected to have a good degree in a quantitative field like finance, accounting, business studies, mathematics, engineering or computing. Applicants whose native language is not English will also have to demonstrate language proficiency through an IELTS score of at least 7.0 or a PTE score of at least 70.

Lancaster's MSc in Advanced Financial Analysis will launch in October.
