Help financial institutions prepare for future developments
Recent crises have taught us a lot about the challenges that banks and their regulators face. How should their lending and investment activities be managed, to balance bank profitability with systemic risk? What is the primary purpose of banks in evolving financial markets? How can the banking sector be optimally regulated? The Banking and Regulation track provides you with the theoretical foundation to analyse these key issues and formulate your own motivated opinions on developments in banking, risk management, ethics, and financial regulation.
Graduates of the Banking and Regulation track of our Master's in Finance have excellent job prospects for positions at regulatory agencies at the national and transnational levels, or in banking and consulting at Dutch or international companies, such as:
- ABN AMRO Bank
- Central Banks
- Authority of Financial Markets
Is the Master’s in Finance for you?
It will be no surprise that a successful career in finance depends on more than just good grades. If you have a natural interest in finance, are analytically strong and have interpersonal and problem-solving skills, you will definitely get the most out of the MSc in Finance. An interest and talent for data science can also be a big plus, since like in almost every industry, the power of data management becomes increasingly important.
