Alongside our campus-based MSc Finance, this means that our flexible learning programme has been acknowledged as incorporating at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate of Knowledge (CBOK) and placing emphasis on the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice within the programme.  These programmes position students well to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst designation which has become the most respected and recognised investment credential in the world.

Entry into the CFA Institute University Affiliation Program signals to potential students, employers, and the marketplace that the University of Leicester School of Business curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and is well-suited to preparing students to sit for the CFA examinations. Through participation in this program, the University of Leicester School of Business is eligible to receive a limited number of student scholarships for the CFA programme each year.

The School of Business has over 30-years experience of offering flexible distance learning programmes. The MSc Finance programme provides students with a understanding of the concepts of finance and the role of financial management in a variety of organisations and sectors.  It will develop students ability to analyse and evaluate financial management issues and make sound strategic decisions.  The flexible learning MSc Finance can be completed in 2 - 2.5 years with students studying both core and option modules.
