Finance BSc Welcome Pack
Welcome to BSc Finance 2022.
BSc Finance provides you with the essential and advanced financial, quantitative and analytical skills necessary for professional careers in banking, asset management and financial research. You will examine core concepts in economics, financial analysis, security valuation, portfolio theory and risk management with a strong focus on decision-making in line with regulatory, ethical and sustainability standards. Throughout this programme, Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters terminals will be used to enhance your learning experience by implementing theories into practice with real-world scenarios.
This programme is aligned to key investment and risk management professional qualifications. In the first year, you will be allocated a personal tutor, who provides academic guidance and support through the course. During the first year of study, you will complete six compulsory introductory modules, that provide an essential foundation in accounting, economics, finance, and mathematics. In the second year, you will build your knowledge on the foundation of the previous year by taking six compulsory specialist modules. At this stage, you will be introduced to a range of finance subfields, including investment, ethical and professional standards, and risk management. In the final year, you will gain in-depth knowledge by studying the more specialist areas of investment. You will take four compulsory modules and up to two designated modules. You can tailor your studies to reflect your areas of expertise and specialisms at this stage by selecting from a range of designated modules in areas such as economics, international finance, and risk management.
