Optional modules are shared with the MSc Operational Research and Finance offered by the School of Mathematics. Most dissertation projects involve either a placement or working closely with a financial or other external organisation.
Management, FinanzwesenProgramme Director
There is a great demand from the public and private sectors, particularly in banking and finance for numerate graduates with the broad range of skills in quantitative and qualitative modelling which this course provides.
The dissertation is in the form of a three month project, where you will apply the skills that you have learned to a real-life business problem. A wide choice of projects is available. Most projects involve either a placement within, or else working closely with, a company or other external organisation.
Teaching on the programme is carried out by members of CORMSIS (www.cormsis.soton.ac.uk) who are known internationally for their research.
Full-time study on our MSc programmes follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period .
Teaching takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
