Overview

The legal and regulatory infrastructure and fundamental theoretical concepts underpinning global finance have undergone fundamental changes since 2008. This has had a profound impact on financial law theory and practice and the operation of global finance. Ever-evolving finance practices, the impact of technology, and a complex regulatory infrastructure, have created a challenging environment for those working in global banking and finance as industry leaders or policy-makers and regulators.

A successful career in today’s global markets requires an extensive and in-depth knowledge of complex and sophisticated global and domestic finance laws, regulations and practices. This skillset may not be developed without extensive study and a solid understanding of economic and regulatory theories supporting the operation of global finance that extends to the disruptive influence of financial technology.

This  International Banking Law and Finance programme at The University of Edinburgh  is ideal for those pursuing a successful career in the legal, accounting and banking industries, or those who aspire to work with regulatory authorities, central banks, and other public sector organisations. 

Career opportunities

Past graduates have joined, or advanced pre-existing careers with, large global banks, global law firms, regulatory agencies, central banks, private sector consulting firms, FinTech operators, venture capital and private equity firms, asset management companies, compliance and accounting firms and other public and private sector organisations.
