Overview

The continuing euro-zone debt issue provides a challenging and exciting opportunity for you to study finance, a subject which is the focus of extensive current debate. Heightened awareness of the inadequacies in the financial system have drawn attention to the requirement for a new generation of risk aware, educated managers with an understanding of financial instruments and markets to run effective operations throughout the front, middle and back office environment.

This programme will provide you with an opportunity to capitalise upon these opportunities, providing you with a rigorous yet practical programme of study designed to prepare you for effective job performance within a financial institution.

The Chartered Financial Analyst qualification is globally recognised and respected. While exemptions are not possible, this programme is designed to cover at least 70% of the Level 1 qualification, thereby equipping you with the knowledge to facilitate passing this exam upon graduation.

Students are guided into taking the BAT (Bloomberg Attitudinal Test) which is a global online test to assess their financial knowledge, aptitude and career skills. For 2012/13, the university was ranked 3rd in the Global Bloomberg Assessment!

The university is proud to say they are joint first for student satisfaction in London for Accounting and Finance ranked by the Sunday Times University Guide 2014.

The aims of the programme are:

*To prepare you for a career in the finance sector
