The global banking industry is currently undergoing a major restructuring and future managers will have to be aware of the importance of the banking industry to the economy, key risk management techniques and the links between banks and the more broadly defined finance industry. Of critical importance is that future bank managers have a holistic knowledge of bank operations - including the credit, liquidity and market risk departments. As a result, the MSc Banking, Finance and Risk Management programme aims to arm graduates with the skills to understand and manage across an array of main bank operations.

What You'll Learn

* the fundamental and advanced aspects of domestic and international bank operations
* essential financial and operational risk measurement and management techniques
* key insights into investment banking and how these banks manage their global operations
* how to utilise financial techniques and their uses within the banking firm
* to apply analytical techniques to analyse operational problems arising within banks
* evaluate theory through critical appraisal of current research in the area of banks

The programme forms part of our MSc Financial Services suite. It is intended for graduates who want to pursue a career in banking and finance and those with relevant industry experience who wish to increase their knowledge and expertise. The programme is based upon banking and risk management and allows students from an accountancy, economics, finance and business background to tailor their expertise in these areas. In contrast to the MSc Financial Services, Risk and Operations programme, this programme allows you to study finance in more depth.
Students have the option of starting in September or January. Full or Part-time study is available.
