Course content

The programme begins with a two week foundation module to bring all students up to a common minimum standard in banking, finance and business statistics. The foundation module also introduces students to important learning resources within the University (e.g. the library and study skills support) and starts the process of encouraging student to work in teams and to see their fellow students as an important learning resource over and above the resources available at the University.

There are four core modules including a banking and finance report:

  1. Principles of Banking;
  2. Global Financial Markets;
  3. Banking Law & Financial Markets; and
  4. Project Report.

The banking and finance based Project Report is aimed at teaching students how to write a sharp focused report.

Thereafter, students must choose a module from:

  • Quantitative Methods;
  • Forecasting for Business and Finance; or
  • Econometrics for Finance

Students must then choose four further modules from range of banking and finance modules.
