Postgraduates studying international business can expect small class sizes (up to 20) and an internationally diverse learning environment, coupled with an innovative course design.

The sustainable finance master's degree will expose you to the latest thinking on such current issues as sustainable investing and micro-crediting as well as prepare you for taking the CFA® Level I exam. The CFA® is the top professional qualification for finance professionals.
