This programme enables you to benefit from the teaching expertise in the department, provided by tutors from both Economics and Finance. You will study how economics and financial decisions affect organisations and their future successes. By gaining knowledge of financial and management accounting, complemented by the study of economics from the viewpoint of consumers, workers, industry, commerce and government, you will be able to utilise this breadth of knowledge when deciding on your career path. This programme is ideal if you aspire to a future career in management and finance-related fields, as skills in both areas are required. This course has a common first year with BA (Hons) Economics and Banking, meaning you have the flexibility to transfer between courses at the end of the your first year. All of the banking and finance staff teaching on our programmes are professionally qualified, with many maintaining close links with the professional bodies through examination and consultancy. Staff are student-focused and have developed innovative teaching techniques involving the use of web-based learning platforms and software used by leading practitioners in the financial services sector. The Faculty of Business and Law hosts two Professional Development Weeks annually. Free and open to all students, this includes a festival of skills-development activities, practical support in developing your CV and employability skills, and the opportunity to network with actively recruiting graduate employers. We are a double-accredited business school, having gained the prestigious AACSB accreditation to provide excellence in global management education. This places us among the top 5% of business schools worldwide to have secured this accreditation and means your degree is internationally recognised.
