The banking and financial markets face many complex challenges. The industry-standard software and datasets and the virtual trading floor gives the chance to test students’ skills – using the same tools as the professionals. The Banking and Finance MSc course is an innovative course designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the finance and banking industry. Students will be equipped with essential research, analytical and critical thinking skills. The programme focuses on such areas that have major practical and theoretical application as: investment analysis and management, portfolio creation and management, investment and commercial banking, asset and risk management, mergers and acquisitions, financial derivatives, quantitative financial analysis, taxation and banking regulation. Students are required to take modules totalling 180 credits to meet the requirements of the qualification, and 60 credits will come from a dissertation of around 15,000 words. They will also study a range of required modules such as Quantitative Methods for Finance, Investments, Commercial and Investment Banking, Financial Derivatives and Statements. In addition to a compulsory 15,000-word dissertation, students will choose further related modules to support their study interests.
