Course summary

About the degree programme

We’ve designed our masters degree programme to help you stand out from your peers.

At our campus in the heart of the City of London, you can learn from the experts. Everyone in our faculty has industry experience, and we regularly host events on our premises.

Our relationship with banking and finance institutions gives us – and our students – the networking edge. With us, you will be able to make valuable contacts for your future.

Our masters degree programme will also give you the strategic management skills and the analytical tools you need to evaluate contemporary industry issues.

The modules in this masters degree programme focus on:

  • risk management
  • corporate finance
  • economics
  • and leadership in the financial services sector.

But you will also be able to select an option module to tailor your learning to your ambition and interests.

Chartered status

Graduating with a Masters Banking & Finance from us will give you automatic chartered status – a mark of senior standing in the banking and finance industries.

Chartered status shows employers, customers and regulators that you have reached the highest level of professional education in your field. It demonstrates your commitment, raises your profile and improves your career prospects.

After graduation, you can maintain your chartered status by completing a programme of continuing professional development with us every year. Chartered professionals commit to ongoing professional development and the highest standards of conduct and ethics.

Careers and employability

The MSc Careers and Employability Training programme is built into your timetable and will cover:

  • career development and planning
  • putting your CV together and writing a cover letter
  • building your personal branding and networking
  • LinkedIn career development
  • a market overview of financial services and banking careers
  • careers in consulting
  • informational interviewing
  • how to work with search firms
  • assessment centre training
  • mock interviews
  • building career resilience

We also have a dedicated Careers and Employability Service at our Lovat Lane campus who offer:

  • one-to-one support to all our students
  • individual career coaching
  • weekly job alerts
  • campus employer events
  • mentoring programmes
  • opportunities for professional development and employment in the UK and abroad

Studying and assessment

We teach all these modules through a combination of classroom presentation, group activities and real-time tutorials.

To assess your work and your progress, we will ask you to carry out a range of tasks that will be similar to what you'd expect to be doing in a workplace. These could be based on reports, projects, case studies, essays, closed-book exams and research proposals.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert Qualification.
