Distance Learning

This course is offered as a distance learning option, enabling you to study at a time that suits you. Delivery of course materials is done through our e-learning platform, Moodle. Supporting materials are made available via email.

If you’re an international student, you can sit your examinations at your British council offices for a fee payable locally of around £100 per examination.We encourage your communication and confidence with active learning methods, such as group work, seminars, debates and quizzes.

You will have in-depth look at risk management and insurance concepts, combining risk and insurance to provide an effective understanding of how both in strategic management and organisation management, as well as a wide range of internal audit techniques. These topics will help you become ingrained in successful audit and business management.

Employability

All assignments are grounded in real working organisations, allowing you to apply your knowledge into a real working environment. The majority of students enrolling on this course will already be in employment, although not necessarily in the area of insurance risk management.

You will be encouraged to use your own organisations in the consideration of topic areas thus increasing their profile within that organisation.

Should this prove difficult the team has a strong track record of working with individual students to provide either case studies and / or internships which can also be utilised.

Programme description

The aim of the MSc in Banking and Risk 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.

Recent events demonstrate that the successful management of banks is of crucial importance to western economies. Banking is an industry rather than an academic discipline and the study of the management of banks is multidisciplinary. The approach of this programme is to consider the structural, financial and risk and asset management functions of banks.

Whilst there are many masters degrees involving banking offered in the UK, the vast majority provide descriptive material about what banks actually do. The Edinburgh Masters differs from the majority in that it has a major emphasis on what decisions Managers in banks should make and how to make them. The course has been designed by asking the question ‘what skills do Managers in risk functions need to be technically excellent at their job.’ This approach is unique and has shaped the content of modules and the structure of the programme.

The MSc in Banking and Risk utilises knowledge and skills gained through the research carried out by members of the Credit Research Centre (CRC) in the Business School. This is a leading international research centre that specialises in research into credit risk modelling.

A strong academic base, passionate faculty and international cohort will ensure a rewarding student experience in our city-centre campus. The school has widespread industry links and students will have exposure to a range of guest speakers.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, problem solving in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

Learning outcomes

Students who follow this programme will gain:

  • a knowledge of the economic roles and structure of banks in in different economies
  • knowledge and understanding of the different types of risks that banks face and how to measure them
  • knowledge and understanding of company financial statements
  • knowledge and understanding of statistical and econometric concepts
  • knowledge and understanding of risk models
  • knowledge of the economic and financial environments in which banks operate
  • detailed knowledge and understanding of credit scoring
