University of London International Programmes
Finance and Financial Law
The programme takes an integrated approach to these two aspects by including risk management, regulation, mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, bond issues, and loans. It relates to both national and international finance and will introduce you to how financial and legal principles are applied in practice as well as in theory. The Postgraduate Diploma in Finance and Financial Law is ideal for those who already have some experience in either law or finance. The ability to weight the choice of courses towards law or finance will mean that you can tailor your learning according to your needs, interests and pre-existing expertise.
Applicants should have a recognised UK Bachelor's degree, or international equivalent, in finance, economics, or another appropriate discipline; qualifications in other subjects are assessed on their merits; applications may be considered for those who have previous education and experience, equivalent to a degree-level qualification, which includes suitable preliminary training.
Modules include: Introduction to law and to finance; corporate finance; financial law; risk management: principles and applications; legal aspects of international finance; legal aspects of corporate finance; bank financial management; law and regulation of electronic finance and internet banking; finance in the global market; regulation of international capital markets; corporate governance; banking and capital markets; research methods; dissertation.
Assessment is by one three-hour unseen written examination and two assignments of 2,500 words each. The Dissertation (available as an option for MSc programmes only) is assessed by the submission of a written dissertation of not more than 10,000 words, excluding the bibliography and appendices.
