Program Description

MA in Finance and Banking

Kadir Has University

The program is tailored to the needs of professionals in the financial sector as well as those involved with the finance function in the real sector. The competence targets of the program spans the areas of financial economics, financial markets and institutions, banking theory, international financial system, managerial economics and the latest architecture of legal regulatory framework.

Like in all programs offered by Khas Business School, the MA in Finance and Banking program treats learning as a holistic process over time and across space. It begins in the core and elective courses delivered in-class and continues during project work, meetings with speakers renowned in their fields and communication among alumni. This is believed to establish a strong bridge between theory and practice.

The program’s perspective to maintain a fine line between theory and implementation allows participants to gain a good command of technical details as well as a solid grasp of the big picture. The participants are trained to hold upper level managerial positions at both private and public institutions such as banks, financial intermediaries and insurance companies. At the same time, participants with an academic orientation are provided with a sound knowledge of methodology and toolset to create new knowledge in their fields.

Problems encountered in professional life are often ill-defined; compared to usual textbook problems they require creative solutions against the quite limited amount of preliminary information. This transforms problem solving from a solely technical procedure to an art. To provide program participants with such an understanding, KHas Business School maintains a rapid and effective, socially and environmentally responsible design culture that emphasizes sustainability and norms of ethical behavior.

As a member of this program, the participants will enhance their technical capabilities for application to the problems of financial sector and improve their leadership skills.

All participants are expected to document their individual academic/technical achievements by submitting a graduation project or a master’s thesis. Earlier admission to all programs are on a “project” (non-thesis) basis. That status can be turned to “thesis” conditional upon academic success and orientation.
