Recent events demonstrate that the successful management of banks is of crucial importance to western economies. Banking is an industry rather than an academic discipline and the study of the management of banks is multidisciplinary. The approach of this programme is to consider the structural, financial and risk and asset management functions of banks.

Aims

Whilst there are many Masters degrees involving banking offered in the UK, the vast majority provide descriptive material about what banks actually do. The Edinburgh Masters differs from the majority in that it has a major emphasis on what decisions Managers in banks should make and how to make them. The course has been designed by asking the question ‘what skills do Managers in risk functions need to be technically excellent at their job.’ This approach is unique and has shaped the content of modules and the structure of the programme.

To study at postgraduate level, you must normally hold a degree in an appropriate subject, with an excellent or very good classification (equivalent to first or upper second class honours in the UK).

We may also accept equivalent qualifications or work experience.

Specific entry requirements vary between degree programmes and you should confirm you have the necessary qualifications before applying.

You will find the minimum academic entry requirements and more details on your chosen programme in our website.
