You will use cutting-edge software and real-time data to develop the skills and knowledge needed to pursue a career in finance. The course is aligned with the latest requirements of the market; students can seek registration with industry bodies such as the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute (CFA) and Professional Risk Managers’ International Association (PRMIA) before or after graduation.

Workshops, problem-solving, case studies and business simulations will consolidate your expertise. All learning is based on real market data; students will hone their skills in the Thomson Reuters/Bloomberg Trading Room. Supported by a team of highly experienced teaching staff, with strong professional backgrounds, you will develop your skills and network.

This flexible course allows you to tailor your learning to your career goals by choosing optional modules. Students can opt to take an integrated work placement component within the programme. Although you will be expected to find and secure the placement, the university’s Your Future Plan team can support you with this. The placement is undertaken after the taught portion of your programme and you will be required to complete an assessment.

The University of Gloucestershire School of Business and Technology has moved to a brand-new, state-of-the-art home at our Oxstalls campus in Gloucester. The £16 million development is home to our Business, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Law and Accounting and Finance courses.
