    Course Summary

    The University of St Andrews’ Banking and Finance MSc program is delivered by their School of Management. It is intended to give students the skills and knowledge they need to pursue successful careers in banking, finance, banking/finance regulation, or a closely related field.

    You will of course study the theory of modern finance and banking in great depth, but you will also come to understand the practice of local, national and international institutions operating in this field. You’ll have a great deal of input form the CRBF (the Centre for Responsible Banking and Finance), including access to prominent researchers and academics as well as successful executives practicing in the field.

    This will give you an understanding of not just the language and culture of business, but also of the economic, legal and social dimensions in which successful businesses operate.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
