Today’s ever evolving global finance sector requires professionals and managers equipped to deal with complex problems. Our Finance and Management course combines rigorous finance theory and its application with general management studies to prepare you for a successful professional career in financial services (e.g. for investment and commercial banks, asset management firms and securities houses) or general management.
In the first year of this course, you will build a firm foundation for modules in subsequent years to build on. You will start with management and financial accounting fundamentals. These are complemented with the development of quantitative, computing and communication skills. You will also be prepared for looking for a placement position. This degree shares the same first year modules as our BSc Accounting and Financial Management degree. BSc Finance and Management students who realise that they prefer the accounting content may transfer to that programme at the end of the first academic year.
In the second year you will start to develop an in-depth understanding of financial management and corporate finance concepts and theories. You will study the economics of financial systems and take an introductory course on financial markets (including foreign exchange) and derivatives.
In the final year you will build on these skills and learn how apply them in specialised core modules on portfolio management, financial trading, multinational financial management, financial risk management and behavioural finance.
