General

Program Description

MSc Financial Compliance and Governance

The MSc Financial Compliance and Governance is aimed at those looking to advance their careers in global financial compliance. Students will be fully equipped to look at not only regulations and compliance functions, but also at other risks faced by financial institutions including market, credit and liquidity.

This course provides an in-depth understanding of financial markets and the changing place of financial institutions in the global economy. The main focus is to explore various threats and risks to financial institutions and the role of the compliance function in helping to identify and combat them. This course provides the optimal mix of theory and practical application of knowledge via real-life case studies.

On successful completion of this course, graduates will become key players in the roles of corporate global risk management, global audit and compliance coordination, corporate social responsibility and ethics management, security and compliance management in all types of financial institutions.

From the 4th Term (9 months of study), students may choose, subject to any applicable visa requirements, to undertake a work placement instead of a dissertation or project. The work placement is for 9 months. Students must complete 600 hours of work.

You can expand your study experience by rotating across our campus locations in London and Berlin. During your time at ULaw Business School, you can complete modules at alternative campus locations, returning to your ‘home’ campus to complete your final module. Visa restrictions and study conditions may apply, however you are supported throughout the rotation process. Contact us (study@law.ac.uk) for more information about the "Global Rotation option".
