Why study MSc International in Finance and Banking?
The MSc International Finance and Banking is designed to enable you to become a more effective and enterprising manager in a range of financial organisations in a knowledge-based global economy. Finance and Banking as a study area is distinct from Accounting in that it is interdisciplinary and draws upon a wide range of soft and hard sciences. Thus at post graduate level the study must be integrative, blending economic, mathematical and financial theory with analytical approaches to solving complex problems and implementing solutions. Finance must also be treated as international in context to ensure relevance in the global economy. In light of
the extensive Oil and Gas discoveries in Guyana this will be rapidly expanding field
