Master Banking and Finance at Newcastle University Business School

Our Banking and Finance MSc provides you with an opportunity to understand and critically analyse the role of banking within international financial markets and the operations of both commercial and investment banks, notably the management of asset-specific, company and country risk.

You will develop a contemporary empirical understanding of the behaviour of international financial markets, alongside providing you with the IT and research skills required by employers in this highly competitive sector. In addition, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the key principles and theories of banking and finance.

Worldwide growth in the financial services sector has increased the demand for students with specialist skills and competencies in banking and finance. This course responds to this market demand and covers emerging trends and issues in the global financial services industries and features compulsory modules in central, retail and investment banking.

You will explore and apply theoretical frameworks in economics and finance, used by practitioners to interpret stylised facts in financial markets and behaviour of financial intermediaries.  You will have access to state-of-the-art statistical software including Stata, MATLAB, Bloomberg and Thompson Financial’s DataStream. You will use these for your empirical projects in applied econometrics as well as your final dissertation.

Guest lectures on the course complement the study of theoretical frameworks with an analysis of the most recent trends in financial markets and banking industries and provide an overview of the available opportunities within the financial sector.
