Would your business benefit from an in-depth piece of research and analysis?

The University of Edinburgh is currently looking for projects for MSc Business Analytics, MSc Banking and Risk, and MSc Finance.

Their students are among the best in their field and combine their strategic business and management skills and specialist knowledge with the refinement offered through our 12-month, intensive programmes. They offer different types of projects and will match you with an individual postgraduate student with the specialised skill set suited to your research needs.

The University of Edinburgh MSc in Finance covers all aspects of investment, corporate and energy finance. MSc Banking & Risk projects could cover such topics as analysis of corporate financial information, credit risk management, econometrics applications and many others.

They University can consider almost any topic that has a finance, accounting, investment, energy market, banking or risk focus. Successful projects tend to have an empirical element, which has practical relevance. Most students are keen to work with practitioners on projects which will be of real value to them, helping them find solutions to strategic financial issues such as validity forecasting, forecast asset market returns, risk modelling, dynamic lifecycle strategies etc.

The MSc in Business Analytics (recently ranked 9th in the world in the QS Global Business Masters ranking) is designed to train analysts capable of taking on complex challenges and getting them industry-ready. The programme prepares students not only to be able to analyse and digest data available, but also to translate this into effective decision-making.

A key part is a research-based dissertation project. They are particularly interested in dissertation topics in optimisation or data science. Can you help?

If so, the University is looking for companies to submit project ideas by 26 January 2019. In return, you'll benefit from the insight of one of the high-calibre postgraduate students, including a substantial report featuring extensive research, rigorous analysis and practical conclusions.
