1 MSc Business Analysis and Finance Programme Specification Course Title MSc Business Analysis and Finance. Course Overview The MSc Business Analysis and Finance degree is a one-year full-time course for graduates who wish to apply their understanding of economics to the analysis of business problems and finance. The central feature of the course is its blend of core economic concepts and principles with their application to problems of business organisation and finance. It offers training in quantitative techniques and their application to problems in business strategy, corporate finance and business organisation. It also provides computer training in data analysis and business problem solving with advanced study of the macroeconomic background to business. The course is structured so as to provide progressive development of generic and subjectspecific research skills. Semester 1 covers principles of finance, corporate finance, the macroeconomic environment and quantitative methods for business and finance. Progression in Semester 2 involves the study of economics of organisation and business strategy plus two options embodying the application of Semester 1 core economic and quantitative techniques. Most modules require the study of recently published academic papers. Optional courses cover a wide range of topics, some (but not all) of which are core to other Masters degrees. These options allow students to broaden the scope of their degree. The dissertation requires students to select and develop a research topic and report results in both written and oral form. It is an important part of the development, application, demonstration and communication in an original research context of skills taught in the core. Each core module and most options are taught by 2 hours of lectures with 5 associated 1-hour classes over a period of 10 weeks. Lectures facilitate the delivery of training in formal analytical skills, along with an explanation of ways in which they may be applied. Small group classes are used for students to demonstrate their own understanding and ability to develop the basic material presented in lectures and for clarification. Students are expected to prepare their own material for class presentation. In Semester 1, projects, class exercises and coursework are used to provide practice in presentation skills. In the second semester contribute to the final mark in a number of modules. Pathways. The MSc in Business Analysis and Finance requires the satisfactory completion of eight taught courses during Semesters 1 and 2. It also requires the completion of a dissertation of between 10,000 and 15,000 words over the period July to September demonstrating the use of theoretical and empirical techniques of research as well as an awareness of recently published relevant research in the area. The taught courses are divided equally between two semesters and usually assessed at the end of the semester in which they are taught.

2 The compulsory first semester modules in Principles of Finance, Corporate Finance, The Macroeconomic Environment and Quantitative Methods for Business and Finance establish essential theoretical and empirical techniques. The project for the Quantitative Methods module introduces students to independent research work and report writing. The compulsory second semester modules in Business Strategy and Economics of Organisation develop theoretical and applied research techniques in more detail in three central areas of business analysis. The MSc in Business Analysis and Finance is fully integrated with the other courses in the Masters programme. The general structure of the degree is to establish core techniques in the first semester, before developing these in the second semester, and also to provide opportunities to widen the degree through the choice of options. There is a graded programme developing generic skills throughout the first and second semesters. Entry requirements A good first degree in Economics or a related subject in which quantitative analysis is a significant part. Aims and Objectives The aim of the course is to provide graduate level training in the core areas of business analysis and finance and the wider economic background against which business decisions are taken. The Dissertation provides an opportunity to show understanding of research methods and experience of their use and communication of results to a wider audience, both in written form and orally. There are five main objectives: (i) The main objective is to develop analytical rigour in the analysis of business problems and finance. (ii) To develop analytical rigour of the background against which business decisions are taken. (iii) To provide students with the analytical and technical background necessary for the ability to read and critically evaluate the published literature in relevant areas and to provide familiarity with the key elements of the literature. (iv) To provide a good understanding of the quantitative research methods available for the analysis of business problems, together with experience of their use through project, dissertation and seminar work (v) To provide students with experience of seminar presentation covering their own research and the published work of others and the wider academic context within which research is conducted The expected outcomes of the course are that successful students:

3 (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) Will have been trained in the central skills of economic analysis and their application to problems in business analysis and finance. Will be able to apply these skills in a number of special areas available for study as options. Will have had experience in the preparation of a substantial research report in their Will have had experience in the oral presentation of research results to an audience. Will have acquired a wide range of generic and transferable skills which will include the use of computer software, bibliographic skills, critical comparison of alternative research methods and research designs, understanding of ethical and legal issues related to social science research, report writing, public speaking, team working, Course Content and Structure Semester 1: MSc in Business Analysis & Finance Compulsory: EC7090 The Macroeconomic Environment EC7091 Quantitative Methods for Business and Finance EC7096 Principles of Finance EC7099 Corporate Finance Semester 2: Compulsory: EC7054 Business Strategy EC7071 Economics of Organisation EC7080 Dissertation (July-September) Optional: (two of these) EC7058 Applied Microeconometrics EC7059 Applied Macroeconometrics EC7075 International Money and Finance EC7076 Financial Derivatives EC7079 Financial Econometrics EC7095 Financial Statement Analysis EC7097 Financial Risk Management The course is structured to provide progressive development of generic and subject-specific research skills. In the first semester the module in Corporate Finance develops key financial understanding. The module in The Macroeconomic Environment provides a rigorous study of the background against which businesses operate, the module in Principles of Finance establishes essential analytical techniques for financial analysis and the module in Quantitative Methods for Business and Finance establishes core understanding of mathematical and statistical techniques relevant to the analysis of business problems. Progression in Semester 2 involves the study of the key subjects of Business Strategy and Economics of Organisation. In the second semester optional courses cover a wide range of topics, some of which are core to other Masters degrees. Some relate to wider aspects of business, finance and economics and some offer quantitative analysis at different levels to accommodate different levels of skill between students.

4 The dissertation requires students to select and develop a research topic and report results in both written and oral form. It is an important part of the development, application, demonstration and communication in an original research context of skills taught in the core.
