However, in order to select a balanced international student cohort, and in response to very high demand from students from China, applications for some countries may close earlier in the year. Any such decision will be reviewed on a regular basis.
The programme provides excellent preparation for careers in investment management, financial research, trading, consulting and corporate finance, and for further academic study in finance.
