This programme is specifically designed to provide:
The first year provides the basis and foundation in banking and finance necessary to understanding the more focused modules studied in the second and final year of the programme. Students from a wide variety of educational backgrounds are all taught a common set of modules during the first year. This enables APU to accept students without specific pre - requisites. The students will study modules covering a range of subjects fundamental to the understanding of business management and finance.
In addition to the above, all students are also required to successfully complete General Studies modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency, as well as fulfill credit requirements for Co-Curricular Activities.
The second year will focus on the core banking and finance modules focusing on Banking Instruments and procedures and credit management as well as the overall financial system environment. Students will also be exposed to knowledge of Financial Management, the Financial System and Law of Banking and Finance to produce graduates with holistic capabilities and knowledge. Students are also introduced to the Business Research Methods module which exposes students on how to write research proposals and conduct research.
The Financial Econometrics modules will introduce students to the tools and test for various financial market hypotheses. Students will be requested to work through a number of questions and projects with a broad range of financial data sets using Econometric software.
The programme also offers the vital benefit of training in the SAP system, the worldleading enterprise software suite. The students will have the hands-on training with the system in the lab and ensures that they will be thoroughly acquainted with this important software application.
In addition, students will have in-depth understanding of banking & finance via modules such as Credit Management and Treasury Management.
At APU, we encourage our students to be entrepreneurial and innovative. After the completion of Level 2, students will undertake a short internship/industrial training of a minimum of 16 weeks. This will provide our students opportunities to engage with realworld business problems both in our programmes and in our renowned Professional Training placements.
In the final year, students will learn more about the practical aspect of banking practices and theory especially on Risk Management in Banking. Students will also learn about the globalization of banking and finance which includes the development of international banking and investment theory in global banking practices. The Project in Banking and Finance further develops the academic and practical aspects of students’ chosen area of study and reinforces their independent learning skills. Courses such as Control and Audit System and Corporate Restructuring provide the necessary closure to the programme.
