What is an MA in Investment? Graduates in this field of study commonly gain advanced skills and knowledge about investment theory and managing market risk. With many classes focused on economics and finance, students may also study international business and economic policy, political science, public finance management, securities, quantitative analysis, ethics and professional standards, risk management, performance measurement, financial statement analysis, accounting, and applying research when managing investment portfolios.
