This course offers you an exciting opportunity to join one of the world’s most dynamic growth sectors, with relevance to areas including property, transport, shipping insurance, credit cards, wealth management and home and commercial mortgages.

The fast-paced subject of financial services management also offers significant opportunities in banking and finance as these arenas have recognised the need to re-think their strategies. The chance to develop long and profitable client and customer relationships is open to firms which are thinking and acting strategically, by embracing new approaches, working creatively and innovating to effectively manage costs and improve the understanding of individual customer’s needs.

You may also choose to take advantage a blended distance learning opportunity, available through our official partner - Robert Kennedy College - in Zurich, Switzerland.

COURSE DETAILS

The programme is block delivered and there are six entry points per year.

This course will provide you with the appropriate advanced-level skills and knowledge you need to contribute to the growing and sophisticated international banking and finance industries.

On completion you will be able to place yourself favourably in a managerial or consulting role. You will be equipped with the skills and understanding necessary to effectively and efficiently perform tasks relevant to your organisation. You'll learn to develop your ability to work effectively in teams and independently, to evaluate critically, think creatively and communicate effectively with respect to issues in the industry; and to recognise good practice in the analysis, planning and management of international banking and finance products and services. You'll also develop an advanced level of understanding of research methods and their application to a wide range of international banking and finance problems.

TEACHING

The course is currently delivered in four blocks of three-day intensive study periods, followed by independent study and online support through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard. Each module is taken and assessed over a six week block. 

From September 2017, this delivery format will change. Students will continue to study a single module for a 6 week period. Face to face teaching will be delivered on campus for two half days each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Business Innovation Programme each Wednesday afternoon during the 6 week blocks, with independent study completed in your own time through Blackboard.  Individual student timetables will be provided during induction week.

ASSESSMENT

Over the duration of your course a range of assessment techniques will be used. Types of assessment include; essays, assignments, exams, multiple choice tests, online tests, group reports, and portfolio work. The weighting between exams and coursework varies between modules and years, but exams still play a major role.
