Banking & Finance Courses
Finance deals with the study of money: how it is acquired and how it is used. In the context of corporate finance, this department is central to an organisations’ decision-making, and can significantly affect the profitability of a project or company. The Finance courses on offer such as an MBA in Finance or an Online MSc in Finance helps Finance managers enhance their ability to oversee a company’s overall finances and their day-to-day operations. Finance courses can also teach professionals how to evaluate and recommend appropriate investment strategies, provide company valuations and determine optimisation of resource purchase and allocation.
Banking is more focused on the investment and management of capital assets on behalf of clients. This field tends to deal with more complex financial analyses as it is strongly tied to the debt and equity markets. Banking courses teach professionals how to raise capital, develop investment strategies and help manage and execute mergers and acquisitions. Stafford offers an Online MBA in Banking from Edinburgh Napier University.
