Why study Finance and Investment at Loughborough University?

This is an applied programme which provides students with knowledge and skills to work in investment roles.

Studying Investments raises some interesting issues, such as why people trade so much, whether the best investment strategy is simply to track the stock market index, how risk should be measured and how assets should be priced.

This degree is aimed at candidates who wish to work within investment management, investment banking and related careers. The programme focuses on both the trading and portfolio management sides of finance. It has a substantial focus on investment within core modules, including Portfolio Management, Financial Trading and International Investment Analysis.
