About 30% of all jobs in the UK’s financial sector are marketing and client-facing roles. If you wish to specialise in marketing within the banking and financial services sectors, then this is the programme for you.

You can study the programme in an intensive 9-month format or over 12-months. Both formats will provide you with the knowledge and skills to ensure that you are well placed to obtain a position directly in banking and financial services, marketing, or at the interface between the two.

You will acquire the technical knowledge to understand how financial services products work, together with the marketing acumen necessary to compete successfully in this highly competitive sector. Non-assessed intensive computer training covering Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Datastream, Eikon, MorningStar, S&P Capital IQ and other key financial databases and software systems, is incorporated into relevant modules.

  • Achieve Graduate Gateway Status from CIM
  • Apply for Associate Chartered Banker designation and attain Associate Membership status

Many of the teaching materials for lectures are made available to you electronically to accompany the notes you take during the lecture. Lectures are given by a range of staff members, including leading professors, who integrate their latest research findings into the teaching that you receive. Guest lecturers, including members of industry, also contribute to some modules.

Seminars and tutorials

Seminars and tutorials involve an in-depth exploration of the issues covered in lectures as well as giving you the opportunity to discuss various concepts and theories and receive feedback on your written assignments.

Assessment

Modules are assessed through a mixture of group work, coursework, project work and examinations; the weighting of each of these components will vary according to the academic requirements of the module. Examinations are normally held at the end of the module, in January and May/June.
