Chartered Banker MBA

EQF Level 7

Designed for busy professionals, the course emphasises professional and vocational development, enhancing the understanding and application of those skills required in the 21st century banking and financial services. It is a ground-breaking new dual award qualification jointly awarded by a UK University and a Professional Body.

The MBA experience brings together high level skills and knowledge from an Internationally recognised University and centre of Research Excellence with the professional and managerial competencies of a World leading Professional Institution dedicated to the profession of Banking. It is a qualification that combines everything demanded in the new, post-crisis banking environment. The programme is aimed at senior individuals in banks and other financial services firms, or those seeking to join the industry, who wish to extend their knowledge and understanding and to acquire the skills to cope with the change in the ever-evolving financial services industry.

This high-level and intensive learning experience combines generic MBA disciplines (such as marketing, human resources and strategic management) with more specialist subjects such as Risk Management, Credit and Lending and Financial Crisis & Regulation, to reflect the modern banking and finance practice. The diverse Chartered Banker MBA experience for bankers also makes this dual award of wider interest to any professional concerned with or interested in global banking and financial services.

When undertaking the Full CB MBA students are required to study 8 compulsory and 4 elective modules, with the latter offering a choice of any four out of a range of  various subjects. Applicants with an approved professional qualification maybe granted exemptions and admitted on the Accelerated Stream. For example, a professional qualified practitioner is only required to undertake 4 compulsory and 3 elective modules. Applicants with a recognised Masters qualification may be admitted on the Super Accelerated route, with the requirement to enrol on 3 compulsory and 1 elective module. Suitably qualified and experienced practitioners with Executive level of experience may also be considered for the Super Accelerated route. These will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
