New MSc Banking, Regulation and Financial Stability – giving you the tools to traverse banking regulation, compliance and risk management

The banking sector has seen big changes in the last few years – the global financial crisis, the sovereign debt crisis in Europe, the introduction of the Single Supervisory System (‘Banking Union’) in Europe, and negative interest rates.

That’s why we’ve set up the MSc Banking, Regulation and Financial Stability – helping to navigate unprecedented challenges in the sector. It’s been created specifically with this context in mind and moves beyond a traditional banking and finance course. It’s the only one of its kind to deliver this in the UK.

There is a growing demand within the industry for people who know how to traverse banking regulation, supervision, compliance, and risk management – this course is designed to shape skill sets that answer that need.

You'll be taught by leaders in their field

The academic staff on this programme have fostered strong links with central banks. The programme director is also consultant to global institutions, including the International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and the World Bank.

As the course is tailored specifically to a growing need within the sector, successful students will be in demand. They can expect to excel in careers in banks and regulatory bodies, in addition to advisory roles in accounting, auditing and consulting firms. Recent graduates have gone on to work with a variety of employers across the sector including Deloitte, HSBC, Citi Bank, Lloyds Banking Group, JP Morgan and PwC.
