Please note this course replaces BSc (Hons) Business Management and Finance. You want to be a manager who makes critical business decisions. You have an entrepreneurial mindset, and you’re eager to develop your leadership abilities and financial know-how. Our full-time Business with Finance degree gives you the skills and confidence to excel in your career. With a strong focus on strategic thinking and financial management, our course also embraces hands-on learning. Get practical experience with our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab in Chelmsford, and an optional placement year. Get all the prowess of a business degree, with the financial discipline to make big, informed decisions. The structure of this course brings together the entrepreneurial approach and analytical mindset you need to succeed. ARU’s teaching facilities include our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab, where you’ll be able to practice your skills from the first year. It will be your safe space to try, fail, and eventually learn all the tricks of the trade – without the stress of doing it on the job. This way, you’ll be ready for your first graduate role with proficiency in contemporary platforms used around the financial world. And receiving an industry-recognised Bloomberg certification upon graduation will only increase your pool of career options. From chartered management accountant and credit analyst, through management consultant and corporate investment banker, to bank manager, marketing executive, project manager or environmental manager – the routes after this degree are immeasurable. From an employer’s perspective, the confidence you will gain in understanding the financial side of the business — and being able to think critically at this level — makes you an ideal candidate for a more senior role. Industry leaders want graduates they can hire, so they work with us to design courses that will mould you into the kind of employee they’re looking for. Your problem solving skills will be tested as you’re presented with actual business challenges, giving you a taste of real world business management and a chance to prove yourself.
