This innovative master program Banking, Finance and Compliance (BFC) combines contemporary knowledge and concepts in the field of international banking and finance with the relevant topics of law and policy and the tools and techniques of compliance management. The drastic changes to the regulative frameworks international organizations operate in (Basel III, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Corporate Governance Codes, valuation and accounting regulations, etc.) means that contemporary business professionals need a new and very special profile. The principal topics dealt with in this course are risk management, regulation of financial markets and institutions, and regulation compliance and management in the light of current financial, economic, regulative and banking developments.
Students will acquire expert knowledge in the field of Banking and Finance and in managing institutions within this industry as well as in consulting and auditing organizations regarding compliance with a complex framework of regulations, standards and codes.
Graduates of the BFC program are not only extremely well qualified for immediate entry into the professional world, but, of course, are also eligible to continue their studies at PhD level.
This program will start in March 2014.
