Software Engineering for Financial Services PG Dip

Financial services are not only one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy but also one of the two largest customers of IT. This MSc is jointly run with the University's School of Business in order to give you not only a command of the software technologies that financial institutions require to 'embrace the challenge of change' but also the business context and organisational structures that IT systems need to support.

We will concentrate on architectures for building scalable financial software systems, including technologies and techniques that are particularly relevant for the challenges of the financial market - predominantly a need to migrate from mission-critical, monolithic legacy systems to more flexible architectures that allow speedy reaction to customer and business partner's needs. The technical aspect will be seen in the context of the business environment, where software engineers typically interact with a world of financial jargon and departments with specialised roles and needs.
