Private Banking and Wealth Management is a module targeted at students who wish to build upon their previous knowledge of financial markets and products by analysing and evaluating the core financial service of wealth management. The module aims to both broaden students’ knowledge and understanding of the financial services industry and further develop their intellectual and practical skills via the analysis and evaluation of the wealth management process.

Full-time students have the opportunity to take a year-long work placement after the second year. A work placement can allow students to gain valuable experience and apply their learning in practice. Please note that students who choose to undertake a work placement do not pay tuition fees for that year, but are required to cover their travel, accommodation and general living costs.

Expand your business skills and increase your management skills. Professional experience and skills development are embedded throughout the course with different opportunities. You’ll hear from current practitioners, take part in trade games and discuss contemporary issues, such as sustainability, financial crisis and technological innovation. We offer a high proportion of internationally oriented modules, so your skills will be applicable all over the world.

The module is designed to provide students with a critical understanding of a select range of issues impacting the business environment, including globalisation, international trade and taxation. The module positions globalisation and the multinational enterprise as inter-linked themes pivotal to understanding and grappling with the challenges and opportunities in the contemporary setting of international business. The module, therefore, provides students with the understanding to appreciate how global issues influence business practice.
