International Banking and Finance

Glasgow Caledonian University


In the past 10 years, the global banking and financial industry has grown consistently in terms of assets under management, profitability, and, of course, resilience. This expansion has left the sector in need of professionals capable of leading and managing the ever-changing environment: adapting to new technologies, evolving consumer needs and preferences, and of course the impact of emerging social, economic and political risks.

You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the theories, concepts and quantitative skills necessary in banking and financial operations. You will also enhance the analytical skills you will need to manage financial products, market securities, investment portfolios, and their related risks, as well as being exposed to the latest developments in the banking and financial industry.

We work with key industry partners in developing our courses to ensure you are focusing on the most relevant areas within the field. The Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Bank of England and Bank for International Settlements all emphasise the need for efficient risk measurement and management procedures within banks.
