International Finance and Accounting - Coventry University

This course is ideal if you have a lively and enquiring mind, and are interested in how business really functions and how strategic decisions are made. It opens up a potentially varied but stable and well-paid career, with excellent prospects: organisations will always need to manage their finances. **Technology** You will learn in our superb modern facilities in the heart of London’s financial district. As part of this, you’ll have access to industry-standard accounting, trading and research technologies, including Bloomberg, Fame, Sage, SAP and S&P Capital IQ. This means you will graduate with the immediate advantage of hands-on experience of the systems used by employers. Upon successful completion of this course you will be awarded a certification in Sage, the leading accounting software. **Mixing with business** This is a very practical course, designed to offer hands-on experience through placements, consultancy projects and simulations. Guest speakers from global employers, networking opportunities and overseas trips all offer essential exposure to the word of work. Close proximity to leading financial institutions within the Square Mile (the financial district in the heart of London) offers opportunities to visit organisations such as the Bank of England, Bloomberg and the London Stock Exchange. **Tutors** Your teaching staff all have wide-reaching international experience. Some have worked for ‘big four’ firms; some serve on business boards; some hold PhDs; some conduct research or consultancy; some are published; most are senior fellows of at least one professional association. Their experience will be invaluable in understanding the practical application of your theory and in explaining how your career might develop. You will find them all to be accessible and supportive in helping you begin to find your own role in the world of international finance.
