This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching and student learning.

It will help you to develop a thorough understanding of the workings of national and international capital markets as well as the operation of financial systems (which include banks, stock exchanges, financial intermediaries, financial institutions, and governments). In particular, your learning will focus on the pricing of financial assets, the measurement and management of risk, and the possibilities for optimising the behaviours of firms, financial institutions and individuals.

The second semester of the second year gives you a fantastic opportunity to study abroad, at one of our international partner institutions. Currently we have partners in Australia, Canada and Europe. In year three you’ll get the opportunity to undertake an optional 30-week placement in the UK or abroad, allowing you to secure career contacts, improve your CV, and ultimately enhance your employability.

You’ll also meet leading industry practitioners and professionals through fieldwork, seminars, assessment activities and presentations. The IBM Challenge, a series of simulated business exercises to which hundreds of teams of university students compete in three rounds, will give you the opportunity to further develop your employability competencies and meet potential employers.
