PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

The Master degree in Banking and Finance is designed to prepare and strengthen the managerial staff of financial institutions, through the acquisition of specialised financial and banking knowledge and skills, so that they can effectively respond to the new realities of today's global market.

The Programme emphasises the development of critical thinking so that students are able to tackle challenges faced in modern financial institutions and banks and acquire a comprehensive view of the key topics covered in the curriculum.

WHY CHOOSE TO ATTEND?

This programme offers a wide range of knowledge about the operation of the financial sector. Graduates will develop the skills needed to understand how banks and financial institutions operate and what are the risks and challenges when making financial decisions. They will also develop a set of tools to meet such challenges.

The programme regards those interested in working in the financial sector or providing financial advice to businesses and other institutions. Our graduates can work in banks, insurance companies, private companies, the public sector and other financial institutions. The programme also provides specialised knowledge to individuals working in financial institutions who wish to deepen their knowledge in their field of work and gain additional qualifications to become more competitive in the labour market.

The Open University of Cyprus (OUC), through its participation in the European project "Liaison Offices with the Labour Market", offers to students of all its programmes of study, the optional and free of charge Thematic Unit (i.e. Module) entitled "Industry Placement".
