Banking and Finance

Our MSc Banking and Finance programme will equip you with the practical skills to understand and model banking and financial markets, using the toolkit of economics. You will learn how the actions of governments, firms, households, and financial intermediaries affect national and global financial, bond, and foreign exchange markets. In addition to this, you will be exposed to the theory and practice of bank credit and lending, as well as financial institution risk management. This programme is ideal for those who wish to pursue a career in financial services, international financial management, or central banking and financial regulation. Our modules are underpinned by the latest research and best practice, having been designed to provide you with up-to-date and relevant knowledge of banking, finance and research methods. There is also some opportunity to choose optional modules that will enable you to specialise in the areas of economics, banking and finance that best suit your career ambitions and interests. Students will also sharpen their applied research skills by either completing a Banking and Finance project or participating in Applied Research Practice seminars.
