Accounting, Finance and International Business with Business Foundation Year - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. This course provides excellent preparation for a wide range of subjects relating to business, management, accounting, finance and economics. The Business Foundation Year has been developed in consultation with Keele Management School which has a long established and growing international reputation. Study of the theory of business and management goes hand in hand with investigation into up-to-date case studies and training in academic literacy, numerical and computational skills. After you have completed your Business Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Accounting, Finance and International Business degree. You will learn how to use industry standard software such as Bloomberg and Sage to organise, present and analyse business data and can opt to enhance your employability skills by taking a placement year between years two and three of your studies. Finance modules are designed to help you understand the theories leading to the design of financial institutions, the services they provide and the products they sell. Topics covered range from optimal portfolio creation and management, to project appraisals and financing, to risk management through the use of such derivatives as options, futures and swaps. Our modules are accredited by chartered organisations such as CIMA and the programme is recognised by a number of professional accountancy bodies, that provide some important exemptions from professional exams, should you choose to further your career in accountancy.
