Programme Leader for Banking and Finance Top-Up

I was appointed Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Banking and Finance Top-Up in 2015, having commenced my teaching career at the University of Sunderland as an Academic Tutor in 2013, before joining full-time in 2015. Prior to working in Higher Education, I was an assistant manager in a specialist unit of a universal bank tasked to protect bank assets in distressed debt situations. I gained experience of numerous industry sectors and worked closely with internal and external partners to formulate action plans and monitor progress of agreed strategies.

Teaching and supervision

My teaching is based within the undergraduate and postgraduate Banking and Finance subject discipline however at present my principle responsibilities are module and programme leadership.

I am the module leader for:
APC312 (Money, Banking and Finance)
UGB322 (International Banking)
PGBM12 (Accounting and Financial Management)
for students studying at our Sunderland and London campuses and those off-campus students who study with our partner universities around the world.

In my role as Centre Liaison Leader for two of our partner universities in Vietnam, I contribute to administration, recruitment and teaching activities. Working with an eclectic mix of home, EU and international students, the Banking and Finance Top-Up courses's aim is to provide students with a holistic understanding of the banking and finance industry.

Research interests for potential research students

My interests include the role and function of banks; portfolio analysis and valuation assessment stemming from my business experience where client relationships, monitoring and provision management was an important aspect of my job profile. With an MA in International Financial Analysis I am preparing to start my PHD studies.
