Course summary

Programme overview

This programme will equip you with the specialist skills and knowledge to pursue a wide range of careers in the banking industry. It has been developed with the needs of the sector in mind and reflects the industry’s growing demand for individuals with an extensive knowledge of regulation and compliance.

Our programme has a distinctive focus on banking regulation, supervision, compliance and risk management. It goes beyond traditional banking and finance courses by exploring the regulatory demands within banking and examining the role of central banks and international organisations in achieving and maintaining financial stability.

The MSc in Banking, Regulation and Financial Stability is designed for graduates of economics or finance who aspire to a career in banking. It will also appeal to recent graduates who are already working in financial services and wish to specialise in banking and financial regulation, as well as those who intend to continue to PhD research in this area. Successful students will be in demand and can expect to excel in careers in banks and regulatory bodies, or advisory roles in accounting, auditing and consulting firms.

You will be part of a dynamic and diverse body of staff and students at our School of Economics, Finance and Management and will be taught by world-renowned experts. Our academics enjoy internationally recognised research profiles in banking and beyond, and bring experience and insight from working at a senior level within the sector. The academic staff on this programme enjoy strong links with central banks (Bank of England, European Central Bank, Deutsche Bundesbank) and international organisations (International Monetary Fund and the World Bank).

We pride ourselves on our highly interactive and innovative style of teaching, and take a case study approach to learning, utilising the sector experience of our teaching team. You will also be able to develop your professional skills by taking part in the extensive programme of careers events and workshops offered by the school and the University's Careers Service.

Careers

The programme is excellent preparation for careers in banking and financial services. Given the increasing regulatory demands being faced by the sector, our programme will make you especially attractive to central banks and regulatory bodies.

Recent graduates of the School of Economics, Finance and Management have gone on to work with a variety of employers across the sector, including Deloitte, HSBC, Citi Bank, Lloyds Banking Group, JP Morgan and PwC. In 2019, the University of Bristol was ranked second in the UK for universities that are most targeted by top employers. Our careers service regularly runs recruitment events specifically for the banking sector.
