It is structured to include the foundational and advanced material needed to build students’ knowledge and understanding of law and finance, provide students with the capacity to embrace current and future changes such as financial regulation, EU law and financial innovation, and develop both students’ technical skills in understanding financial and legal concepts and analytic skills to apply these skills.
