Course summary

The Masters in Banking and Finance (MSc) provides students with a solid preparation for further academic-oriented research in banking and finance as well as the skills needed for a wide range of careers in the financial industry.

Highlights

  • The course provides an in-depth study of the theory and practice of modern banking and finance.
  • The Centre for Responsible Banking and Finance (CRBF) exposes students to the research and work of eminent academics and business executives.
  • This programme opens a wide range of new and exciting career opportunities as many financial firms and government agencies require an in-depth knowledge of the functioning of financial markets and institutions.

Careers

If students choose not to complete the dissertation requirement for their Masters degree (MSc), there are exit awards available that allow suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and receive a PGDip instead of an MSc.

Alumni from the Banking and Finance programme and more generally from other Masters programmes in the School of Management have secured employment in the fields of general management, marketing and brand management, accountancy, investment analysis, fund administration and other aspects of the financial services industry.

Graduates from the Masters in Banking and Finance have taken up roles in a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sector including:

  • Deloitte and Touche
  • Deutsche Bank
  • IBM
  • HSBC
  • Nomura Bank
  • Blackrock Global Investment Management
