The Global Banking and Finance MSc degree programme will provide students with an understanding of domestic and global financial systems, the impact of global and domestic financial crises and covers issues of regulation and control by international monetary authorities.
You will study corporate finance, legal and regulatory environments, national and international standards, financial theory and enhance your knowledge of alternative types of banking and contemporary issues in the field such as systemic failures and sector problems.
The course is ideal for students who wish to pursue careers in financial regulation, banking, finance and risk management, insurance or actuarial science.
