Higher Diploma in Business in Finance

Programme Purpose

The Higher Diploma in Business in Finance provides a pathway for those students who have a general business, social science or other degree but wish to gain exposure to the domain of Finance and Economics and do not wish to undertake an MSc in these domains. Given the technical/quantitative nature of the NCI MSc Finance, the entry requirements necessitate prospective students to have an honours degree in a cognate field of study such as Finance, Economics or Accounting. For those students, who are from a noncognate background but who wish to pursue the MSc Finance, the Higher Diploma will provide the necessary articulation path. The programme comprises of six ten-credit modules which together provide a comprehensive understanding of the financial, regulatory and economic components of the financial services sector.
