The course is suitable for students with a background in Accounting, Finance, Business and Economics or in a quantitative subject, such as Science or Engineering.
Assessment is designed on the basis of clear evaluation criteria, and offers early feedback from formative assessment and feed-forward advice to allow the students to enhance their performance. Case studies and assessment through coursework will allow the students to improve their analytical and critical thinking and improve their communication, writing and presentation skills. In the third semester the students will apply the knowledge and research skills developed in the first two semesters to carry out research in the form of a dissertation in banking and finance.
Teaching and assessment in the MSc Banking and Finance is based on the NBS 2x3 Learning Method. This systematic approach advocates the use of interesting questions that challenge incorrect assumptions/conventional wisdom and the employment of technology in order to improve the student learning experience.
The MSc Banking and Finance will provide you with the in-depth knowledge of cutting-edge techniques you need to succeed in the global financial and banking sector. It will also equip you with the necessary research skills for pursuing academic research at PhD level.
