ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Acquire the skills and knowledge you need to have a career in Singapore’s flourishing banking industry, and tap into career opportunities from over 120 major banks operating here1.
You will explore how the banker-customer relationship works and learn how to build customer trust, create and manage loans, make strategic investment decisions and help businesses, governments and people with their finances to help them achieve their goals.
Banks and financial institutions work based on having debt built into their structure – and you will learn to understand the interest, credit and liquidity risk management issues that this can create. You will examine how banking systems work and how it affects the local business environment, as well as international trade.
Students with Murdoch University-recognised Kaplan Diplomas or relevant Private Diplomas or Polytechnic Diplomas will be given up to 8-module exemptions and gain entry to Year 2 of the programme. As students can gain entry direct to Year 2 of the programme, they can complete the programme in 16 months instead of 28 months.
Students will attend a combination of lectures, tutorials and workshops in this programme. Students have the flexibility to plan their study schedule based on their own study load. Programmes are scheduled for 5 days a week, 3 hours a day. Students are expected to be on campus for classes, workshops and self-study. Each unit is supported with 24 contact hours. The Dean from Murdoch University is based in Singapore to oversee all academic aspects and ensure a high standard of academic delivery here.
Each unit is assessed by any combination of class participation, written assignments, project or examinations. Assessment methods may vary according to individual unit requirements.
Students who successfully complete and pass the modules stipulated in the course structure will be awarded the Bachelor of Business in Banking and Business Information Systems (Double Major) from Murdoch University. The degree will be the same as that awarded to on-campus graduates in Australia.
