Worldwide growth in the global banking sector and the increasingly complex financial markets has furthered the demand for professionals with specialist skills and competencies such as thorough understanding of the principles and techniques in global financial markets, and an appreciation of the role of risk management in complex financial institutions.

This innovative postgraduate programme is specifically designed to equip graduates looking to pursue careers in corporate finance in large financial and non-financial institutions, corporate financial services, financial regulatory agencies, wealth management and investment. The compulsory and optional modules of this exciting programme cover a very wide range of specialised areas from which you will gain a thorough and in-depth knowledge of the most current developments in the global financial markets and institutions, investment and wealth management.
