It offers theoretical as well as practical insight into banking practice and regulatory frameworks, corporate finance, and international financial architecture. This course is designed for students from a variety of backgrounds and does not require any previous training in economics or finance.

The course is delivered via lectures, seminars, workshops, business games and independent study. This will be supported through:

  • A learning environment which fosters debate;
  • Modules which encourage students to critically assess theory and practice with a view to creating new concepts and practices for the future;
  • Projects which offer practical application of theory to support learning and increase employability.
