Financial training provider and Northeastern University London partner up to launch banking degree
Tailored towards postgraduate students from all academic backgrounds, the programme offers a unique pathway into the industry for those who have discovered a passion for finance and investment banking later in their careers, or have no prior financial training or internship experience.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Financial Edge,” said professor Scott Wildman, dean of Northeastern University London. “
This programme combines Financial Edge’s expert financial training with Northeastern University London’s world-class academic reputation. Our shared commitment to innovation, excellence, and teaching real-world skills will help students develop the abilities and knowledge they need to succeed in the investment banking industry.’
The MSc Global Investment Banking is a 12-month intensive programme designed to help fast-track learners into investment banking roles. This conversion masters degree explores the different aspects of the investment banking industry, including how banks operate, the relationships banks share with their clients, the day-to-day work involved, and the role of investment banking within the global business landscape.
The programme will be delivered in small, highly interactive classes with personal supervision from expert financial trainers, including ex-investment bankers. Students will also have full access to Felix, Financial Edge’s on-demand learning and data platform used by over 20,000 Wall Street analysts, which will enable them to integrate real-time company and market data into learning and practical exercises.
Taught by Financial Edge’s expert faculty of ex-investment bankers and finance practitioners with extensive experience on Wall Street, the MSc Global Investment Banking provides a comprehensive understanding of industry principles and practices.
“Our trainers are the best in the industry,” said Financial Edge managing director Andrea Ward. “They have worked as investment bankers in the world’s top banks, including Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, and Barclays.
“We also work closely with the world’s largest banks on a daily basis, benefitting from their unique insight into the recruitment process, including the key skills and attributes which recruiters are looking for in investment banking applicants. We have built those very insights into this programme.”
The MSc Global Investment Banking differentiates itself from traditional postgraduate finance programmes by bringing the knowledge and real skills of investment banking into the classroom. It combines academic rigour with hands-on, practical training, covering key topics such as financial modelling, accounting, corporate valuation, Mergers & Acquisition, and Private Equity.
“The investment banking industry is fiercely competitive, and constantly evolving,” said Alastair Matchett, ’and it takes more than ever to stand out from the crowd. Our partnership with Northeastern University London is a testament to our commitment to provide students with the hands-on skills and depth of knowledge that are needed to succeed this is the kind of information you simply cannot get online.“
