To keep up with the continued changes in the financial services sector, bank regulation and bank operational risk management, there is an increasing demand for employees to remain at the forefront of these changes.
We collaborate with leading financial services organisations to keep our modules cutting-edge and ensure that by making the decision to study the programme you have the confidence to apply this newly learned information in the industry.
Broaden and enhance your knowledge, understanding and skills in the area of domestic and international bank operations and risk management by learning from our diverse teaching team. They have a broad range of experience, ranging from academic to industry expertise in both the public and private sectors. We work with key industry partners when developing our programmes to ensure you are focusing on the most relevant areas within the field. The Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Bank of England and Bank for International Settlements all emphasize the need for efficient risk measurement and management procedures within banks. We have also worked closely with some major financial institutions to both validate the programme and place students in professional jobs, including Morgan Stanley and Royal Bank of Scotland.
