Global Central Banking & Financial Regulation qualifications

A part-time, online programme delivered in collaboration with the Bank of England

The Global Central Banking and Financial Regulation programme has been designed for professionals working in the banking and financial sectors who require a level of flexibility in order to develop their career alongside other commitments. 

Monetary policy and financial regulation are constantly evolving. Current issues are how to manage quantitative tightening and maintain financial stability, whilst suppressing the risk of any inflationary surge. This urgent need sits on top of the pressure to encourage FinTech, support a sustainable economy, and find ways to utilise the insights of behavioural finance and the potential of Big Data. It is in this climate that, in collaboration with the Bank of England, we have developed the Global Central Banking and Financial Regulation qualification.

Built with the industry professional in mind and delivered by academics from Warwick Business School (WBS) alongside policy experts from the Bank of England, and beyond, this programme will introduce you to the latest evidence-led and practice-informed financial regulation and monetary policy, while providing practical discussion of real-world cases.
