Course Summary


From the heart of London’s exciting financial district, get ready to take your place in the increasingly fast-moving, complex and exciting world of international financial services.

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, fundamental and far-reaching changes have required leaders in this sector to think and behave in a new way. Wide-ranging political, regulatory and technological responses to these changes, as well as new business opportunities and challenges, form part of the new landscape. This MBA explores the implications of all these changes, preparing graduates to lead the financial services organisations of the future.

This programme will equip you for a high-flying career in financial services, whether you’ve just completed your undergraduate studies or have been working for some time, and whether you need an MBA to accelerate your career progression or want to move into this sector for the first time. It offers the flexibility of start dates in October and January plus options for full- or part-time study.

In addition to gaining academic skills and knowledge, MBA students have the opportunity to undertake a professional development programme designed to develop career plans, improve professional skills, and increase employability.

This course is accredited and recognised by the Chartered Management Institute.
