Summary

Bankers are central to the functioning of modern economies and to the development of global trade. In recent years banking has undergone a revolution in terms of the types of services it provides and the way it provides them. For example, smart phones have opened up opportunities for providing new banking services. These radical change in banking has resulted in the need for specialists who are not only familiar with traditional finance but also with banking and other financial services in the digital environment. This MSc programme meets this demand. Alongside traditional subject matter you will study the core modules by the CBI that prepares you to sit for to the Advanced Diploma in Banking and Leadership in a Digital Age. On completing this programme not only will you have gained an MSc but you will have also insights into the developments of current and future banking.

This programme makes no assumption about the previous academic background of students and as such it provides an ideal route to students with background in the humanities and science and engineering into modern banking. This programme is upto date with regard to the latest developments in the field. For example the module on FinTech and Mobile Banking introduces students to the impact digitisation is having on banking and some of the developments in terms of new digital currencies such as BitCoin. It also offers students insights into the contributions made by banks in dealing with climate change. For example in the module Green Finance students study green bonds, which have been designed to finance climate change.
