This specialist programme is designed for students who want to develop the analytical and technical skills required to develop a career in modern financial services.
Delivered by expert faculty and leading finance practitioners, students will receive the highest analytical and practical training possible. Trinity Business School is partnered with the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association and affiliated to the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute – both of whom have recognised the academic rigour and industry-relevant skills taught to students.
Students partake in finance simulations in trading, portfolio management and investments. All designed to simulate the world of global business in which you will work. Students will learn to use the Bloomberg Professional Service – the financial market system used by more than 320,000 decision-makers in business and finance globally. This hands-on experience will teach students to generate league tables and gain insight into company performance and cyclical trends. Students can also choose to work towards a professional certificate in Bloomberg.
The programme is assessed based on a combination of assigned coursework, written examination, a group project and a capstone assignment. The course will be composed of numerous core modules, a variety of elective modules and a project. The research project is the culmination of your degree, allowing you to demonstrate and apply the techniques and knowledge acquired from the taught modules to a problem of real world academic or managerial concern.
