DCU's MSc in Investment, Treasury and Banking is a part-time postgraduate programme aimed at people working in financial services who wish to deepen their knowledge of financial markets and products.

The programme explores the roles of the various participants in the financial markets, the competitive structure of the markets, and the regulatory environment. It also examines how to price and hedge financial products and measure the risk of such products, both in isolation and in portfolios.

Students who complete the DCU MSc in Investment, Treasury and Banking programme will understand how value is created in financial markets and will be equipped to apply this understanding in their work.

"My job entails day to day management of our bond portfolios and foreign exchange exposures/requirements. The M.Sc. gave me an appreciation and understanding of financial markets and asset management, from the various underlying economic fundamentals and their interactions, to strategy and asset allocation. It provided me with the necessary knowledge to access, make and implement individual investment decisions."

The programme objectives are:

  • To develop students' understanding of the concepts and theories which underpin markets and products
  • To enable students to price, hedge and manage the risk embedded in financial products
  • To equip students to create value in investment, treasury and banking environments.

Since it began in 1990, the MSc in Investment, Treasury & Banking has established a strong reputation as the leading graduate finance programme in Ireland. Many of its graduates are working in senior positions in the Irish Financial Services Centre (IFSC), in non IFSC-based financial services, in the United Kingdom, the USA and Japan.

The reputation of the programme attracts highly motivated students who, on graduation, are much sought after by the industry in Ireland and abroad.
