In the Master in Banking and Finance you will focus on international financial markets, the function and behaviour of banks and bankers, the regulatory institutions that govern banks and other financial institutions worldwide, the effectiveness of regulation and the banks' strategic allocation, funding and investment decisions, and the sustainability of financial solutions and concepts.
