Course summary

The programme covers a range of business and finance subjects, providing you with the generic transferable, and specific career oriented, skills to meet the challenges of a career in modern business. Modern business graduates need to understand how business and management works but they also need to have a clear understanding of the most important element for the survival, stability and growth of a business - its finance. This programme will provide you with a clear understanding of how finance works and the ability to source the best finance, allocate funding appropriately, and control the financial resources. The financial skills will enable you to prepare and interpret financial statements and apply these to the business skills you will develop alongside these. At the time of writing it is intended that part-exemption from the accountancy professional bodies, ACCA and CIMA will be sought to allow you the opportunity to complete professional examinations on completing your studies.
