Program Description

If you’re interested in a potential future career in the fast-paced banking and financial sector, a course in Banking and Finance could provide you with the opportunity to learn the skills needed to succeed.

Over the past ten years, the scale and importance of the banking industry to the global economy has grown – with a 2018 report showing the world’s top 1000 banks now hold $123.7 trillion in assets, up from $96.4 trillion ten years ago. Such growth requires an increase in talent, with the City of London, home to many of the UK’s largest banks, predicting a 34% growth in jobs in the next 30 years.

Our BSc Banking and Finance course has been designed to help meet this need by focusing on your potential future employability. Not only will you have the opportunity to study modules specifically related to banking, such as Banking Regulation, Principles of Banking and Risk Management in Banking, upon successful completion of the course you will also gain applied knowledge in the areas of economics, finance and accounting, which should help to prepare you to enter the banking and finance industry upon graduation.

Studying with us also allows you to benefit from the support offered by our employability team and the experience you can gain on our industry-standard Trading Floor, which allows you to explore putting theory into practice, and also offers the opportunity to study towards a professional Bloomberg certification (subject to availability).
