20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: MGT250


Aims/Description: This module is aimed at those students wanting to move into fund management / trading within global equity markets and who are targeting leading investment banks and fund managers as a career destination. The module will develop skills and understanding of a Bloomberg terminal and how to analyse and value companies using a range of techniques. The module will focus on using predominantly numerical techniques however these will be blended with other considerations which impact the value and performance of global listed companies. A wide range of global case studies will be used to demonstrate advanced valuation techniques and investment principles, thus giving students a sound grounding to take future professional qualifications with bodies such as the CFA. Tutorials will be based in a trading room enabling students to utilise a wide range of practical data sources and trading platforms, such as Bloomberg within the setting of a small and supportive class.
