With immense power to affect organisations, economies and the day-to-day lives of everyday people, our banks and financial systems play a vital role in maintaining stability throughout the world. A career in this sector is filled with exciting and important challenges to right the wrongs of the recession and develop new innovative ways to do business.

Featuring the advanced learning you need to embark on a stimulating career in the financial sector, this course has an emphasis on relevant and prominent issues for the sector such as financial regulation, risk management, international systems, banking institutions and securities markets. We value skills training as highly as we value theory, so you can also expect to learn the practical ways in which you can use this knowledge within your profession, including training in a range of financial software systems.

Many of our academics are involved in pioneering research in areas such as portfolio management, corporate finance and ethics in finance, and have been practitioners with organisations such as Standard and Poors and The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
