BSc Business Finance and Management with a Year in Industry
This degree programme is designed for those looking to pursue a career in the financial services industry or financial aspects of any organisation. You will study the key principles of business finance, financial management, international financial services, financial modelling and investments alongside other core management disciplines.
About the Course
The degree programme emphasises the development and enhancement of transferable intellectual and study skills, all of which are highly relevant to business and management careers. These include improved self-awareness and personal development appropriate to graduate careers in business, alongside a potential for management positions
Within the BSc stream of degrees, our undergraduate degrees share a common first year. This structure means that you’ll get a broad view of business, and can be confident you are on the right course for you. As you progress through your degree you will be able to specialise and tailor your studies to the areas that you find most interesting and that are most relevant for your career goals.
Teaching and learning
Teaching and assessment make extensive use of real world examples and tasks. Transferrable skills are developed in the modules Introduction to Quantitative Methods for Business and Quantitative Methods for Business, and are practiced in other modules in all years.
A range of assessment methods are used to monitor your progress, with most assessment carried out through examinations. Coursework will be used to assess various skills, through working with case studies, essays, individual and group presentations, and reports.
Year 1 and 2 modules focus on assessing your ability to analyse and interpret financial and other data and to identify and solve problems. Year 3 modules assess your capacity to relate theory and practice, to criticise and question, and to reason and argue.
Year in Industry
With a year in industry you will gain valuable work experience and have the chance to build your professional skills and confidence. In today’s competitive job market relevant work experience is a great advantage. A year in industry will not only give you first-hand knowledge of the way in which your chosen field operates, but it will also provide an experience that you can build upon.

DisclaimerWhilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
