Study Details

MSC 1 year or 9 months full-time

About 30% of all jobs in the UK’s financial sector are marketing and client-facing roles. If you wish to specialise in marketing within the banking and financial services sectors, then this is the programme for you.

You can study the programme in an intensive 9-month format or over 12-months. Both formats will provide you with the knowledge and skills to ensure that you are well placed to obtain a position directly in banking and financial services, marketing, or at the interface between the two.

You will acquire the technical knowledge to understand how financial services products work, together with the marketing acumen necessary to compete successfully in this highly competitive sector. Non-assessed intensive computer training covering Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Datastream, Eikon, MorningStar, S&P Capital IQ and other key financial databases and software systems, is incorporated into relevant modules.

With a range of innovative optional modules and dedicated career pathways with the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and the Chartered Banker Institute (CBI), you have the opportunity to tailor your studies to match your career aspirations:

Each of the accredited pathways offers you the opportunity to develop an up-to-date and professional insight of the industry. You will also gain professional recognition and join a worldwide network of like-minded individuals to help build and sustain your career.
