Master of Banking and Finance (MA)

School of Business and Economics
Atlantic International University

The Master of Banking and Finance (MA) program objective is to provides students with a deeper understanding of the field that allows the student to analyze and solve financial issues. The program provides a unique learning experience where formal knowledge transfer of technical concepts is rooted in business practice. The Master of Banking and Finance (MA) program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Master of Banking and Finance (MA) curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.
