Course content

The world of banking is changing massively with the introduction of new technologies that are disrupting the financial market. Mobile banking and social media are giving all of us new opportunities for using and controlling our financial decisions.

This new programme puts a strong emphasis on financial innovation. You will look at the influence of mobile banking on the finance sector while developing a strong knowledge of modern finance and banking theory as well as appropriate accounting procedure relevant for banks and other financial institutions.

You will develop skills that will enable you to work not only in the traditional sectors but also new and emerging platforms such as peer to peer lending.

Course details

This programme is block-delivered and part time students study alternate modules (one module on, one module off) to complete their degree in two years.

The course is delivered in four blocks of intensive study periods. For each block, you study a single module for a 6-week period. Face to face teaching is delivered on campus for two half days each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Industry Collaboration Project each Wednesday afternoon during the 6-week blocks.

During this period, you will also undertake independent study in your own time with online support through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard.

For the final third of your studies, you will work on your Industry Collaboration Project, working with your own or another organisation on a live brief.
