Finance Research Project

The Finance Research Project is one of the elements of the degree that really differentiates it. The goal is for each student to produce a real-world piece of financial analysis. To do this, students must put into practice the portfolio of skills that are taught in the module. The project is mentored by one of our academic or professional staff on a one-on-one basis, and many of our graduates find that this project segues them into the career of their choice, by acting as a calling card to interested employers. Recent topics researched in depth range from crytocurrencies, to peer-to-peer lending, to the game theoretical foundations of 17th century trading clubs in Amsterdam.
