  • Objectives
    The Masters degree in International Banking and Finance has been designed to develop an understanding of financial theory and analysis that is particularly relevant for those aspects of international banking. The globalisation of business and the integration of financial markets implies that banking is increasingly an international business. The course develops the concepts and skills that are required by financial managers and financial analysts operating in this environment. It also provides an understanding of contemporary financial problems and issues facing international business and banks.
