Course content

Overview

From the heart of London’s exciting financial district, get ready to take your place in the increasingly fast-moving, complex and exciting world of international financial services.

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, fundamental and far-reaching changes have required leaders in this sector to think and behave in a new way. Wide-ranging political, regulatory and technological responses to these changes, as well as new business opportunities and challenges, form part of the new landscape. This MBA explores the implications of all these changes, preparing graduates to lead the financial services organisations of the future.

This programme will equip you for a high-flying career in financial services, whether you’ve just completed your undergraduate studies or have been working for some time, and whether you need an MBA to accelerate your career progression or want to move into this sector for the first time. It offers the flexibility of start dates in October and January plus options for full- or part-time study.

Why choose this course?

Studying in the City of London means you’ll be exposed to one of the world’s busiest and most successful financial centres on a daily basis. Your tutors will take every opportunity to connect you with the world of financial services, both within and beyond the classroom – and you’ll have opportunities for overseas field trips.

Responding to recent upheavals in the global financial markets, this MBA programme will ask you to question conventional wisdom and replace it with new perspectives and patterns of thinking, and to explore ways in which managerial paradigms can be re-thought and implemented.

Our applied approach to learning means you’ll rapidly become fluent in real working practice, and you’ll have many opportunities to mix with the world of business and finance. You’ll focus on industry-standard financial software and trading platforms, business simulations, real client projects and entrepreneurship while exploring corporate finance, the markets and banking.
