The MSc Banking and Finance programme is designed to equip you with a thorough understanding of the complex and rapidly changing areas of banking and financial markets, and to develop the expertise needed for a broad range of careers in the finance and banking sectors.

The programme will develop practical skills in banking and risk management as well as analytical skills in relation to financial institutions, instruments and markets. The course will also provide a conceptual and theoretical grounding in current concepts and techniques in banking and finance.

The MSc Banking and Finance is designed for students seeking a career in both domestic and international banks, at central banks, banking regulators or in consultancy.

Our location in the heart of the City of London means we have regular speakers from financial organisations to give you up-to-the-minute knowledge of the subject area and bring practical insights into the classroom by applying the theory to real-world scenarios.

You will benefit from use of a state-of-the-art virtual trading floor (The Finance Lab@ Liverpool in London) which provides access to the latest financial software used in the banking and finance industry. These facilities are integrated into the programme in order to familiarise you with practical skills such as trading and database use.
