Overview

The Business Finance BSc (Hons) course focuses on the practical application of finance in, and for, businesses.

Designed to equip you with technical knowledge and skills in line with the Association of Corporate Treasurers qualification, as well as a range of employability attributes, this flexible course will encourage your development and commitment in becoming an business finance professional.

As you progress, you will become more effective and creative in problem solving, as well as being able to critically advise individuals and companies in the UK and abroad.

The course also has the option of a sandwich year, wherein you’ll get to go on a year long in-industry placement.

During the second and later years of the programme, there will be more flexible learning opportunities that will enable you specialise in particular subject areas, as well as allowing you to tailor your programme to a specific career aim or professional body. There will also be opportunities to experience different graduate roles, with a wide variety of placements and internships on offer to compliment your studies.

Programme structure

All modules will mix face-to-face lectures with online activities. As a practice-based course, sessions will usually involve the application of academic concepts to real-world scenarios.

Online delivery will also be provided via the University’s virtual learning environment, and modules will also require you to engage with online study to prepare for, participate in and further develop your skills.

Due to the professional alignment of the programme, examinations will be a common feature when it comes to assessments. However, a variety of methods will be used, and you’ll be required to deliver reports, presentations, essays and project plans, both individually and within a group.

You will regularly engage with tutors, working together to identify any gaps in your knowledge and finding appropriate learning activities to suit your individual needs. A variety of learning activities will be used, whether it be a short written piece or a reflective journal, and you’ll be given regular feedback by your personal tutor.

Career opportunities

This course sets you up for fast-track training and entry-level management jobs because of its roots in business. The roles you’ll be qualified for are varied and you can tailor your third year modules to support your career.

For example, one of our recent graduates progressed on to a marketing assistant role for Enterprise Cars, while another became a purchasing graduate for Jaguar Land Rovers.
