Entry Requirements
MODULE 1: PROFESSIONAL & ACADEMIC SKILLS
This module is designed to help you identify the transferable skills gained through personal, social and voluntary activities and demonstrate how these are applicable to employment. The module encourages you to produce an employability skills profile and enables you to better articulate your skills in an interview scenario. In addition, the module will address areas such as business and global acumen; professional relationships; technical capabilities specifically related to Financial Services; excel modelling; and social media.

MODULE 2: FINANCIAL THEORY, PRODUCT & MARKETS
This module aims to provide students with the tools required to understand market and institutional structure and its operation and behaviour in preparation for a career in the financial services industry. A major focus of the module is to glean an in-depth understanding of operations within a financial services organisation.

SPECIALISM: REGULATION AND COMPLIANCE MODULES:

MODULE 3: REGULATION AND COMPLIANCE
In order to ensure confidence in financial markets and products, the role of financial regulation has become ever more increasingly important. Without such confidence, in extremis, financial markets would fail to function. Therefore, it is critical that the practitioners of the future are educated in the role of the regulatory function and have an understanding of the principal areas of regulation and compliance.

MODULE 4: CASE STUDIES AND STANDARDS OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE, CONDUCT AND ETHICS
An integral part of the study of the financial services industry is the lessons to be learned from failures that have occurred globally. Corporate scandals in recent years followed by the credit crunch and resulting global economic downturn, have led to standards of corporate governance, conduct and ethics attaining a new prominence in the financial services industry. This module will consider transparency, accountability and integrity, and how they are translated into practice effectively and ethically as possible.

Assessment will be in the form of online assessments over the course of the 2 semesters.

*PLEASE NOTE MODULES MAY BE DELIVERED IN A DIFFERENT ORDER THAN LISTED ABOVE & SPLIT OVER MULTIPLE SESSIONS.

Description
The Postgraduate Certificate in Global Capital Markets, delivered in conjunction with Ulster University, is designed for graduates from any and all disciplines who want to pursue a career in the financial services sector.

Participants will then be required to complete two further modules relevant to their chosen specialism of Regulation and Compliance in Semester 2.

This course is also available with a specialism in Financial Risk Management: Risk Management Practices and Mathematical Foundations of Risk Measurement. This Risk Management course will begin in Sept 2020 – please search Irish Times Training courses within Springboard for more information.
