The Banking and Digital Finance programme offered at the University College London (UCL) will emphasise the analytical foundation of finance and financial products, focusing on theory and methods and making extensive use of relevant practical applications.

The primary objectives of the MSc in Banking and Digital Finance are to provide students with the tools and skills of an in-depth understanding of the finance and banking industry.

The MSc will provide graduates with a systematic understanding of banking, financial systems and the advanced technological application of finance, the external context of these areas, and how they are managed. Graduates will be competent in applying a range of digital tools, taking account of their relationship and interaction with banking and financial markets.
