Course summary

Throughout the course, teaching is designed to embed the professional skills required by business and finance sector employers. We draw on real-world case studies and use a range of innovative practical exercises, such as trade games. You may be tasked, for example, with advising a UK company with overseas subsidiaries to gain experience of international strategy and financial planning.  You’ll have access to one of largest academic trading floors in Europe, which incorporates analytical, news and data platforms to give you first-hand experience of these industry-standard tools. For example, previous students have used Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters Eikon, Thomson Reuters Datastream or Fitch Connect.  We enjoy close links with many professional accounting and finance bodies, such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), CFA Society of the UK (CFA UK) and Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI). Guest speakers often deliver sessions in commercial awareness, employability and working in the business sector. Past students have undertaken placements and gone on to work for prestigious companies including Microsoft, IBM, Tesco Graduate Scheme, Jaguar Land Rover and the NHS. You’ll be taught by highly qualified staff with substantial experience in practice and industry, many with active research interests in areas such as auditing, banking, corporate finance and financial markets. They regularly bring contemporary practice into the classroom, for example, monitoring relevant news stories like the furore around public pensions or executive bonuses, to stimulate debate and discussion.
