International Banking, Finance, Risk and Regulation

University of Dundee


City Campus


Explore the role of banks and finance in the modern global economy. Using information from a number of sources, you will study the theory and practice of international banking and financial markets, and their behaviour. You'll apply theory to real-world problems.

Specialising in risk and regulation has become much more relevant in the last decade. Regulations have changed rapidly and become even more complex, with a greater need to manage the risks associated. You'll explore the risks faced by banks and how to mitigate these risks.

You will study different international banking systems, money, investments, and regulations which have become increasingly important in recent years.

Foundation Banking, Finance and Business Statistics; International Banking Systems; Risk Management in Banking; Derivatives and Risk Management; Global Risk Analysis; Bank Modelling and Performance Analysis; Project Report; Financial Regulation and Ethics.
