Summary

The aim of the MSc in Banking and Risk is to give students the knowledge, understanding and key skills that will enable them to be effective managers in financial institutions, especially banks, in any country in the world.

Recent events demonstrate that the successful management of banks is of crucial importance to western economies. Banking is an industry rather than an academic discipline, and the study of the management of banks is multidisciplinary.

The approach of this programme is to consider the structural, financial and risk and asset management functions of banks.

Why Edinburgh While there are many masters degrees involving banking offered in the UK, the vast majority provide descriptive material about what banks actually do.

The Edinburgh MSc differs from the majority in that it has a major emphasis on what decisions managers in banks should make and how to make them.

The course has been designed by asking the question ‘what skills do managers in risk functions need to have to be technically excellent at their job’. This unique approach has shaped the content of modules and the structure of the programme.

The MSc in Banking and Risk utilises knowledge and skills gained through the research carried out by members of the Credit Research Centre (CRC) in the Business School. This is a leading international research centre that specialises in research into credit risk modelling.

A strong academic base, passionate faculty and welcoming city will ensure a rewarding student experience in our city-centre campus. The school has widespread industry links and students will have exposure to a range of guest speakers.
