The Brunel Economics and Business Finance BSc gives students interested in pursuing careers in finance the theoretical and practical skills needed to understand and analyse economic and corporate financing and investment decisions in the business world. You’ll get a solid grounding in the analytical techniques of micro and macroeconomics and develop your ability to critically evaluate economic events and their impact on financial markets. You’ll study econometrics and develop highly valued skills in data modelling, and will get training in analytical packages widely used by business and financial institutions such as SAS, EViews, Bloomberg, Reuters and STATA. We offer two study options. You can choose three years full-time or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement between years two and three that will give you the chance to apply the theoretical principles you’ve learned to a working environment. You can tailor the final year of your course to specialise in an area of particular interest. The degree is accredited the ACCA and CIMA, which means you’ll gain exemptions from certain professional qualifying exams. In a financial marketplace that is becoming more complex and sophisticated, the skills and knowledge that you’ll gain from your Brunel BSc will stand you in good stead for a successful career.
