Trinity College Dublin

Dublin , State ,Ireland

Finance (M.Sc.)

Course Description
This specialist programme is designed for students who want to develop the analytical and technical skills required to develop a career in modern financial services.

Delivered by expert faculty and leading finance practitioners, students will receive the highest analytical and practical training possible. Trinity Business School is partnered with the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) Association and affiliated to the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute – both of whom have recognised the academic rigour and industry-relevant skills taught to students.
Students partake in finance simulations in trading, portfolio management and investments. All designed to simulate the world of global business in which you will work. Students will learn to use the Bloomberg Professional Service – the financial market system used by more than 320,000 decision-makers in business and finance globally. This hands-on experience will teach students to generate league tables and gain insight into company performance and cyclical trends. Students can also choose to work towards a professional certificate in Bloomberg.

The programme is assessed based on a combination of assigned coursework, written examination, a group project and a capstone assignment. The course will be composed of numerous core modules, a variety of elective modules and a project. The research project is the culmination of your degree, allowing you to demonstrate and apply the techniques and knowledge acquired from the taught modules to a problem of real world academic or managerial concern.

Job Opportunity Potential

If you are an international student studying at Trinity, you might be considering internship and graduate work in Ireland, in your home country, or elsewhere. This section provides information for Non EU students on working in Ireland during and after your studies. For information and resources to support an international job search, see our Devex resource which includes international job search advice and information.

Employers value candidates who have more to offer than a good degree with high grades. They look for students who are well rounded and who have experience outside the classroom. Search for and take advantage of opportunities to gain experience, develop your skill set, and gain a clearer picture of what you like and don't like in terms of career options.

For example, you can get involved in some of the many student clubs and societies in college, volunteer or get a part time job. Remember that voluntary work is as valuable as paid work on your CV or resume - it's a great way to demonstrate your skills to future employers. Have a look at the TCD Civic Engagement website and check out volunteering opportunities in Ireland and abroad.
