Do you want to learn more about how banks operate and what financial advisers do? Do you want to gain the knowledge to have a career with organisations such as Barclays, NatWest, PWC and Ernst & Young? 

This course will provide you with an insight into financial services and contemporary market developments, as well as equipping you with the general theory and analytical skills required to succeed in a highly competitive environment. With 88% of our students in work or further study after six months of graduating, this is a highly relevant course with strong employability potential (Unistats 2014). 

This course will enable you to gain a broad range of experience and expertise in the general business area as well as the more specialist area of financial management through modules such as principles and theories of finance, operations management, marketing, finance, financial markets and institutions and human resource management. You will learn to use our Bloomberg terminals which will enrich your knowledge and understanding of the various factors that influence and shape the contemporary financial services world. 

You can take the opportunity to undertake a year-long paid placement with organisations such as HSBC, Procter & Gamble, IBM and GE or the opportunity to study abroad with our partners. Further to this, in-class guest speakers and field trips to relevant organisations provide you with the opportunity to network as well as to put theory into practice
