Finance is about making investments, with a particular focus on how stock markets, and other financial markets and institutions function. To invest successfully it is necessary to understand how financial assets can be valued, how portfolios should be managed, and how corporations interact with their shareholders, all of which are studied as part of the BSc Finance degree at Queen's. There are a range of rewarding careers available within the financial sector, with opportunities in investment banking, fund management and stockbroking. Our students have an excellent record of consistently obtaining highly sought after graduate positions, due to the academic rigour of the degree, the integrated placement year, and the strong links between this course and the finance industry. Queen's University has recently developed Northern Ireland's first ever financial trading room. The 'First Derivatives Trading Room', supported by Invest NI, provides a dynamic learning environment which gives students a real-life experience of a busy stock exchange with the capacity to deal in equities, bonds, foreign exchange and derivative instruments. Integral to the BSc Finance programme is the 9-month placement with a financial institution, to be completed in the third year of study. A dedicated placement team ensures that students are well prepared for placement and obtain positions which are of the highest quality. The BSc Finance degree at Queen's has recently been ranked amongst the best Finance degrees in the UK. In the 2013 National Student Survey, 96 per cent of our students agreed that they were satisfied with their course, placing us fourth in the UK and second amongst the elite Russell Group of universities. Additionally, Accounting and Finance at Queen's has been ranked seventh in the UK in the Times Good University Guide 2014.
