Learning Opportunity: Higher Diploma in Business

Higher Diploma in Business

Course Information

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.
