The Master’s in Finance program at Leeds is a deep dive into corporate finance, financial consulting and investment management. Set your sights on a career at an asset management firm, consulting firm, bank or corporation and acquire the essential skills and knowledge you need to be competitive in any financial field.
You’ll gain a solid foundation in quantitative methods and practice applying key concepts in specialized, case-based courses.
