Career prospects:

These potential employers are now additionally located in the Middle and Far- East and a postgraduate student is almost as likely to find their first job in Dubai, Bahrain or Shanghai as in the traditional centres.

This demand has been instrumental in designing this challenging suite of programmes. In order to maximise employability the programme learning outcomes are geared towards supplying students with the knowledge, skills and understanding that the finance industry requires. A key component of this is the module “Current Issues in Accounting, Banking & Finance”.
