Course summary

Overview

The International Banking and Finance MSc is ideal for those wanting to pursue careers in banking, finance, or investment management.

The course will enable you to develop skills in the analysis of international financial markets and institutions, and provide you with a conceptual and theoretical grounding in current concepts and techniques in bank financial management, portfolio management, financial econometrics, business analytics and associated areas.

You will also be introduced to a range of empirical techniques enabling you to analyse sectoral dynamics, the impact of innovation on performance, and the impact of regulation and policy interventions on the financial services industry. The modules you will take consider international aspects of banking and finance and you will have the option to work on an Executive Company Project or traditional dissertation during the summer. There are also opportunities to get involved with a #DMUglobal international experience programme such as a visit to New York City’s financial district and choose a language study option.

The course has been awarded the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment (CISI) Education Partner accreditation. This accreditation aims to help students achieve a globally recognised professional qualification at the same time as their degree, ensuring they have a competitive edge upon graduation. A number of sponsorships are available each year to students enrolled on the course to gain the Introduction to Securities and Investment professional qualification.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (presentations, essays and reports) and usually an exam or test.

Your precise timetable will depend on the optional modules you choose to take, however you will normally attend around 15 hours of timetabled taught sessions (lectures and tutorials) each week. We expect you to undertake at least 15 further hours of independent study to complete project work and research.

Graduate careers

An International Banking and Finance MSc will open up a wide range of career opportunities as you develop a broad base of skills that are in great demand with global employers.
