MSc in Finance at DCU

Last updated: 24 Feb 2023, 11:22

A stroll down my memory lane makes me realize that the inclination towards financial management was there right from my childhood, by virtue of piggy-bank management or being diligent in planning with the little pocket money received from my parents.

Dixith - MSc in Finance

My passion for subjects related to finance made me pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce. With the Bachelor’s degree in the bag, I wanted to gain some practical exposure in the finance stream, so I worked for three years upon completing my bachelor’s degree.

At the time, I wanted to pursue my master’s degree in finance to widen my knowledge and deepen my expertise. After doing detailed research, I found out about MSc in Finance offered by Dublin City University. The program has a specialization in two streams that are relevant to the current financial industry and the program offered by DCU is ranked #1 in Ireland and #49 in the world.

Regarding coursework there is a total of eight modules, containing six compulsory modules and two modules related to the specializations we choose. The two specializations at the moment are Capital Markets and Financial Technologies & Sustainable Finance. The course also includes a dissertation that carries 30 credits, where we can explore a topic of interest in great depth.

The MSc in Finance is an extensive program that equips students with technical, analytical and decision-making skills relevant to the financial industry. The program provides a critical understanding of financial theories and opens up a wide range of career opportunities.

The guidance from internationally renowned professors at DCU enables graduates to tackle the professional challenges that they will face. The diversity in the student body environment at DCU would provide ample opportunity to interact with people of different cultural backgrounds and ethnicities.
