Management and Development of International Financial Systems

Financial institutions have been forced by the globalisation of trade and finance to engage in the international financial market. Without a knowledge and understanding of international banking theory, practice and procedure, finance managers cannot take the strategic steps required to restructure financial systems in order to operate effectively and efficiently in this new and evolving environment. The course combines academic rigour with a policy orientation. The varied backgrounds of the teaching team and their range of research and consultancy activities ensure an appropriate blend of academic and practical perspectives. The programme also invites input from practitioners of major financial institutions with national and international roles.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2.2 Honours degree or an equivalent international qualification may also be acceptable.

Course modules

Modules include: Comparative study of financial systems in developing countires; multinational operations in finance and banking; accounting research management and methods; corporate governance (MANDIFS); corporate finance; issues in international management; business venturing; dissertation.
