The Building Societies Association and the School of Business and Economics launch first-ever Masters for customer-owned financial firms
The Building Societies Association (BSA) and the School of Business and Economics have launched the first UK Masters programme geared specifically for those who work in a customer-owned/mutual financial services firm.
The three-year MSc in Leadership and Management includes topics, such as:
- Leading & Managing People
- Corporate Governance
- Modules on Financial, Operations and Marketing Management, Strategy and Planning
Whereas conventional business school Masters focus almost exclusively on operating in a PLC/shareholder-owned business structure, this new Masters programme focuses on the practical, cultural and ethical approach required to lead a modern mutual.
A total of 26 staff drawn from 17 building societies of all sizes have signed up to the three year part-time programme with the support of their societies. Students will spend between 12 and 14 days a year across four modules at the School of Business and Economics, as well as undertaking significant personal study. They will be supported both by the Loughborough tutors and a mentor within their own society.
