Finance

Are you are interested in the dynamic relationship between finance and the social sciences? Would you like a broad-ranging, flexible and topical learning experience? Would you like to participate in a course that is jointly delivered by Alliance Manchester Business School and the School of Social Sciences? Would you like a chance to study abroad for a semester? The Finance pathway of the BA (Hons) Economic and Social Studies programme - or BA (Econ) for short - is a long-established and popular degree. Taught by experts across the University, including Alliance Manchester Business School, the degree features a broad range of internationally recognised and research-led teaching in accounting, finance, economics and law. You will also benefit from the ties that the University has with the three main accounting bodies (ICAEW, CIMA and ACCA) along with international businesses, such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Kellogg's and Rolls Royce. Above all, the course offers a flexible and relevant learning experience for anyone considering a career in finance, accounting or banking. Accounting and Finance (NN43), Finance (N300) and Economics and Finance (LN13) all share a common first year. In some cases it's possible to swap to a different pathway after the first year.
