Finance and Investment Banking

A career in the financial markets, investment banking and securities is the first choice for many well-qualified graduates. It’s not hard to see why when some starting salaries exceed £40,000. This course offers integrated theory and practice that will empower you to find your dream job in large corporations, working in investment banking, asset management, corporate finance and a wide range of other career destinations within the financial markets or the broader corporate world. Graduates will be equipped with specialised knowledge in asset classes, markets and institutions which comprise the world of modern finance and gain a wide range of employability skills. The BSc Finance and Investment Banking is an official Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program partner. This title certifies the academic rigor and practical relevance of the degree and recognises that the curriculum covers at least 70% of the CFA Level l candidate body of knowledge. It also comes with a series of benefits, including five annual scholarships for final-year students who want to sit the exam. Our three dealing rooms are supported by Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg, and use the latest high-frequency trading simulation software. You will experience the thrill of a live market – take positions, quote two-way prices and manage the risk of a $50-100-million trading book. This first-hand practical experience is a unique learning opportunity and will give you an advantage over other job applicants.
