Course Overview

Overview:

Our MRes in Finance and Management degree is unique in two respects. First, it combines a broad based training in quantitative and qualitative research methods used in financial and management studies. Secondly, due to the research background of academics at SOAS and their regional expertise, the qualitative and quantitative research methods introduced can be applied in the context of developing and emerging economies.

The programme is suitable for students with a background of BA or BSc level who wish to progress to undertake a PhD, but who do not already hold a Masters level qualification. It is also suitable for students who want to improve their qualitative and quantitative research methods skills, and for those whose Masters level degree did not contain significant research methods components.

In many cases, students will wish to join a PhD programme after successfully completing the MRes in Finance and Management. Why study MRes in Finance and Management at SOAS

Course content

Structure:

Students must take 180 credits. These are composed of 90 taught credits comprising core and optional modules and a 90 credit dissertation.

The MRes in Finance and Management has three components:

  • Four core modules
  • Two option modules
  • Dissertation of 20,000 words on an approved topic

The 20,000-word dissertation is worth 50% of your final mark. During term 2 you will submit your dissertation proposal and be allocated an academic supervisor. Over the ensuing months you should meet with your supervisor at least three times before the end of term 3 for guidance. The bulk of your dissertation will be written over the summer to meet the mid-September deadline.

Not all option modules are offered every year; please check your preferences with the Programme Convenor. Also note that where 15 credit modules are selected, these should be balanced between term 1 and term 2.
