Course content

Our MSc Banking and Finance course is suitable for everyone, whether you already have related qualifications or experience, or want to change the direction of your career. The course helps you progress towards recognised professional qualifications that are accredited by the Chartered Banker Institute, making our course one of the few UK programmes to offer this level of recognition.

You’ll develop an understanding of the concepts and methodologies of banking practice, an appreciation of the value and limitations of research, and a critical awareness of the current and potential problems facing the industry. You’ll also improve your ability to understand and compile economic reports, company accounts and financial forecasts.

We encourage students to reflect on the benefits of a more ethical approach to banking and finance. We ensure you’re aware of the importance of sustainability in financial decision making, and in particular how social and environmental risk factors affect financial performance.

We’ve also partnered with Santander giving you the opportunity to take part in its Work Skills Programme.
