To prepare graduates for careers in mid- to senior-level financial and banking positions in central and commercial banks, consulting firms, investment funds, hedge funds, or insurance companies, the Master of Arts (MA) in Banking and Finance is designed to offer rigorous academic and practical training. Besides providing training in banking, finance, management, and accounting, the program also provides an in-depth understanding of the finance industry. During this course, students will develop critical thinking and decision-making skills, which will enable students to evaluate bank operations, corporate finance issues, financial derivatives, investment strategies, quantitative techniques, risk management models, and the latest developments in financial markets.
MA Banking and Finance degree can be earned in two ways, with a thesis or non-thesis option. With an MA Banking and Finance degree, students will learn the skills needed to succeed in the professional world and get the chance to match the high potential of the students with employers worldwide. Graduates can work in financial institutions such as banks, securities companies, insurance companies, accounting offices, and international organizations. In addition to providing students with a solid foundation in finance and banking, the curriculum fosters research, analysis, synthesis, creativity, and ethical behaviour skills. Therefore, the MA Banking and Finance degree with a thesis also prepares our graduates to excel academically and pursue an academic career by continuing to their Ph.D. program in their research fields.
