**Overview**

This degree programme is designed for those looking to pursue a career in the financial services industry or financial aspects of any organisation. You’ll study the key principles of corporate finance, financial management, international financial services, financial modelling and investments alongside other core management disciplines. The flexible structure of the course allows you to tailor your degree so that it matches your individual career goals and interests.

Studying finance is also valuable from a personal perspective. You’ll build a solid foundation of financial literacy, which will provide you with the knowledge that is necessary to make financially responsible decisions that may have a significant impact on your financial well-being.

You don’t need to have studied business before to shine on this degree. You just need to be highly motivated and ready to work hard.

**About This Course**

The course emphasises the development and enhancement of transferable intellectual and study skills, all of which are highly relevant to business and management careers. These include improved self-awareness and personal development appropriate to graduate careers in business, alongside a potential for management positions. You’ll also gain the quantitative and analytical skills that are essential for a successful career in the fast-paced industries of corporate finance, financial services or financial markets.

Our academics are passionate and enthusiastic, with significant research contributions in areas such as asset pricing, corporate finance, portfolio theory and risk management. Their research-led approach to teaching will provide you with a meaningful and deep learning experience, and will enhance your employability.

The finance modules that we offer on the degree are recognised by the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI) as strong preparation for selected CISI qualifications. As an accredited CISI Education Partner, we offer several scholarships every year that will cover the total exam costs for the CISI Level 3 award for Introduction to Investment. The scholarship will also provide you with a CISI Student membership, which offers access to careers events, employability training, on-campus presentations and exam bookings.

The syllabus on the degree also covers a minimum of 70% of the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute (CFA) Program Candidate Body of Knowledge. This means that upon a successful completion of the finance modules that we offer on the degree, you will be well positioned to obtain the CFA designation, which is highly prized and globally recognized. As a member of the CFA Institute University Affiliation Program, we are eligible to award a number of scholarships for the CFA Program each year. The scholarship covers the CFA Program enrolment fee and a substantial portion of the examination costs.

Over 2,000 students graduated with a degree in finance in 2015, and a sign of the strength of the finance industry, numbers are on the up. Over half of finance graduates go into the finance industry, with accountancy and financial advice roles particularly popular. It's also quite common for finance graduates to go into jobs which require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications — finance graduates who take further study are more likely to be studying accountancy than finance. About a third of graduates start their careers in London - but Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham are other popular locations for finance graduates to work.
