Banking and Risk
The aim of this course is to give students the knowledge, understanding and key skills that will enable them to be effective managers in financial institutions, especially banks, in any country in the world. The approach of this programme is to consider the structural, financial and risk and asset management functions of banks.
The admission requirement is normally an Honours degree from a good university, with an 'excellent' or 'very good' classification, in a subject with a quantitative component for example: economics, finance, mathematics, statistics, physics, management science/operations research; candidates with a good Honours degree in accounting or business with successful completion of at least 1 statistics course will be considered on an individual basis; work experience is not a requirement for entry to the programme, however relevant work may increase applicants' chances of acceptance; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 7.0 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 100 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE(A) 67 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade B or CAE grade A.
Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations and continuous assessment.
