The innovative design of the program and its market led curriculum equips students with relevant, up to date, skills and knowledge in the areas of finance and banking. The goal of the curriculum is to give well-qualified students the analytical and conceptual foundations for future high-level financial executive positions in any country in the world. The program combines the theoretical rigor of financial and banking economics with empirical, real-world aspects of finance, banking and risk management and accounting through interactive activities such as simulation games and case studies discussions.
Whilst the program provides students with a robust grounding in finance and banking, the curriculum also encourages critical thinking fosters skills of research, analysis, synthesis, creativity, and ethical behavior.
The plan is achieved through a curriculum of many core courses covering economics, corporate finance, risk management, statistics, mathematics, banking, accounting as well as a sizeable number of elective courses covering real estate finance, market and credit risk management and portfolio management.
