Financial services professionals are invited to attend a Master’s Open Evening at Jersey International Business School on Monday 03 July to find out more about the MSc International Financial Services programme.

Students of the Master’s will choose a study pathway that suits their own educational and professional aspirations, acquiring specialist knowledge in an area of financial services of particular interest to them. Study pathways include areas such as:

  • Financial crime prevention
  • Governance, risk and compliance (GRC)
  • Management within financial services
  • Wealth management
  • Trust and company management
  • Funds

The research-based Master’s is studied part-time over 2 years, allowing students to fit their study and research around work and home commitments. The programme is awarded by the University of Buckingham, one of the leading universities in the United Kingdom. Applications are still being accepted for October 2017.

Chris Usher, Chief Executive Officer of Jersey International Business School, commented:
“The Master’s programme gives students the opportunity to develop higher-level cognitive skills which will support them throughout their professional development and enhance their career prospects.
Studying for a Master’s can be daunting and JIBS are proud to support students through their academic studies. All students are provided with both a first and second supervisor, together with an academic support officer. The programme gives students the opportunity to work closely with leading academics in their area of specialism, and also with industry professionals.”

Students will have unlimited access to the Business School’s range of CPD seminars and events during the course of the Master’s, which will allow them to undertake their mandatory CPD whilst they develop their body of work.

In addition, the University Centre will host regular Academic Dinners for Master’s students. These will comprise seminars on financial services, delivered by leading academic authorities and practitioners, followed by dinner. The Dinners will support learning and subject matter research in order to further develop understanding.

Interested students should already hold a first degree, or have a relevant professional qualification with a minimum of three years’ work experience. Tuition fees for the two-year programme are £10,950.

Jersey International Business School is holding a free Master’s Open Evening on Monday 03 July, from 17:30 to 18:30. For more information on the Master’s programme and to register for the Master’s Open Evening, visit
