The Finance and Banking MSc course at DMU provides students with a critical understanding of advanced concepts and theories relevant to the finance and banking disciplines. Including their applied aspects, their nature and significance in the modern economic environment, and the role of financial supervision and regulation as a means to reduce systemic risk and protect consumers, depositors and investors.
You will also be introduced to current techniques, methods and technologies used in the finance and banking industries to measure, price, eliminate the risk associated with various financial assets, and efficiently allocate capital to the economy.
Both financial and non-financial firms are increasingly considering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks. The reasons range from market demands and stakeholder expectations, to expanding awareness of ESG issues and the regulations designed to address them. There are also financial and non-financial benefits to prioritising sustainability. Given this context, the programme enables you to develop and apply your knowledge and skills in a socially responsible, ethical and sustainable manner to the role of a finance or banking professional as well as in other business and management-related work environments in the UK and internationally.
We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why we’re introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of our courses, known as Education 2030. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study one subject at a time instead of several at once. You will have more time to engage with your learning and get to know the teaching team and course mates. You will receive faster feedback through more regular assessment, and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life.
