Regent's University London

Course Introduction

Taught by professionals with extensive industry experience and high academic qualifications, this programme will prepare you for work in multicultural, globalised financial and banking organisations. The programme offers three specialisations: Trading; risk management; banking. You will gain a thorough understanding of the various fields that make up the finance industry, as well as learning practical skills for your future career. We simulate the real'life experience of working in finance through training on the Thomson'Reuters platform, and guest lectures from industry specialists. We also use case studies of current live companies of interest, and you will participate in a case study competition, where your final valuation is presented to a panel of experts. You will look at how the theory and research you study applies to today’s reality, by discussing topical issues, such the eurozone crisis, considering a range of different perspectives, its causes, and potential solutions.
