Course summary

Our core programme in Finance was designed by researchers with industry and regulatory experience to equip you with the skills necessary for a successful career in the financial services industry. You will also be well-placed to pursue careers in economic consultancy, government departments or market regulators, as well as specialist postgraduate studies. Today's financial services industry relies heavily on data analysis. The course offers rigorous training in all areas of finance with a focus on the quantitative skills that are required in every aspect of financial decision-making. The course is among the first in the UK to contain coverage of new and disruptive forms of finance at undergraduate level, including cryptocurrencies, FinTech, Big Data analysis, smart beta investing, peer-to-peer lending or high-frequency trading. You will learn to relate concepts and theories to financial practice through the use of specialist industry newspapers, including the Dow Jones Financial News and data vendors, such as Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters Eikon, as well as Refinitiv. Through core units and a choice of optional units, you will gain exposure to the related fields of economics, accounting, management and business law.
