    This MBA is especially valuable for people holding a professional qualification (including a qualification in accounting, finance, or related professions) who are employed in banks or other financial firms.

    The MBA Banking equips you to manage and advise on banking, and develop a number of bank functions. The subjects it covers include bank financial management, financial law, corporate finance, legal aspects of electronic banking, and a range of special subjects.

    Teaching & Learning
    The MBA is made up of six courses. Each course is studied in eight-week sessions. You can only take one course at a time, but each course is typically available in at least two of the year's study sessions. This gives you the flexibility to plan how you study during the year, enabling you to fit your study in with your professional, family and personal commitments.

    You will be individually assigned an online academic tutor for the duration of each course with whom you can discuss academic queries at regular intervals during the study session. You will also have a named administrator providing you with help and advice throughout your studies.

    Before the start of each course you have enrolled in, you will be sent a package containing all of the course materials that you need to complete the course - the core text, textbooks, a collection of key articles, and any course related software.

    To make your experience as a distance learning student more complete and rewarding, we provide access to the Online Study Centre, which is a web-accessed learning environment. Via the OSC, you can communicate with your assigned academic tutor, administrators and other students on the course using discussion forums. The OSC also provides access to the course Study Guide and assignments, as well as a selection of electronic journals available on the University of London Online Library.

    For each course, you will sit a three-hour examination, held on a specified date in October, and complete two assignments during the course study session. Assignments are submitted and feedback given online. Examinations and assignments are weighted 70:30.

    You will study five core courses:
    * Bank Financial Management
    * Financial Law
    * Risk Management: Principles & Applications
    * Corporate Finance
    * Law & Regulation of Electronic Finance & Internet Banking

    You will also choose one elective course:
    * Macroeconomic Policy & Financial Markets
    * Banking & Capital Markets
    * Bank Regulation & Resolution of Banking Crises


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
