The Dean on CNBC: Swiss Banks & Gold will rise again

In my latest interview on CNBC I discuss about the outlook for Gold and the Banking sector, especially the better than expected results of some Swiss Banks like Credit Suisse. My students in the class “Money Management” – that is part of our Master in International Business Management and MBA in Leadership & Sustainability have a chance to combine theory with practice: the assessment of the course consist on a personal portfolio that each student can build and track on a daily basis. If you are not a student in the University of Cumbria Master in International Business Management or MBA the next intake is starting in June (with the induction starting in May) and we are currently accepting applications for the last places.

    hi David,
    this has opened me up. I don’t have enough finance at the moment but as sure will try my best to see that I make it in life at your place. though am in Kenya and I did a diploma in clinical medicine which is not that marketable. I hope you will advice me on that.


    Dear Mr.
    Good afternoon, thank you for thinking of me. The only downside is the money would have to be a scholarship and I do not be in a position to afford college now. In Peru things are bad for some sectors. In my case I am short of money. Grcias for thinking of me and apologize.

    Hello!!!! Am really happy to learn about your programs. I am particularly impressed that most of your universities are flexible unlike ours in Kenya. I really would wish to join you for the Leadership and sustainability program. I don’t have a bachelors degree but I have worked in the Military for twenty years as a Military Officer and rose to the rank of Major( substantive).
    Never got a chance to join the sandurst for degree in strategic studies. All through my Military career was about Leadership,Command,and Management.
    Can you evaluate this with a view to validate to a degree so I can join for the MBA program. Anxious.
