About the course
Graduates have a broad understanding of financial management, and an in-depth knowledge of at least one of the areas of accounting, economics and finance. They have been introduced to management more broadly, and have studied the application of quantitative methods in financial analysis. The overarching strength of the degree is in its focused financial orientation which prepares graduates for careers in more specialised and more technical areas than the typical broad business qualification.
