Summary

Overview

In this Masters programme, skills are developed through creating a broader understanding of financial firm risk-taking, accountability and governance. The emphasis is on a deep analysis of mainstream and critical authorship. We will challenge current and past thinking of the role of financial institutions and markets. The programme particularly encourages you to examine regulatory structures and concepts in the context of recent and past financial crises. You will build the skills and knowledge needed to gain an understanding of financial reform processes and their consequences for markets around the world. Rigorous classroom teaching coupled with extensive reading will provide you with a sound theoretical basis. An understanding of substantive legal issues is also developed.

Contributions by industry and regulatory experts will introduce you to the nuances of real-world application of theoretical constructs. Practical case studies, current legal positions and interactive student discussions or presentations are used in most lectures. In addition, legal, academic, practitioner and regulatory input is gained through specialist guest lectures and visits as per the ability of the year-group.

Continuing your career

The financial services sector has an ever-expanding need for graduates trained in the fundamentals of compliance, governance and regulation. The increasing demand has been fuelled by implementation of a number and rules and laws, including the EU Market Abuse Directive, Markets in Financial Instruments (MiFID), global standards such as Basel II, and the FSA and US regulators’ focus on principles-based regulation. All of these require significant in-house compliance resources.

With recent explosive growth in capital markets such as China, India, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, combined with the increasing complexity of financial products and a growing sophistication on the part of investors and market participants, there are immense challenges facing institutions, compliance professionals within them and regulators.
