Taught entirely in English, this is a unique three-year experience. This course includes a year of study at the prestigious Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, fully supported by University of Reading and local tutors, and attracts a £4,000 scholarship (against fees for home and EU students).

This degree provides a unique opportunity to make yourself stand out. Spending your second year at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice – top 200 in the world for economics and econometrics (QS Rankings 2016) – will broaden your perspectives beyond your imagination. Studying abroad can enhance your future career options and you do not need to speak a second language – although we can help you develop your knowledge of Italian in the first and second years. Along the way, you’ll gain a deep understanding of corporate finance, business management, accounting, economics and business law.
which will help prepare you for a management career in the financial services industry or general management roles in large enterprises. It is not a year out from study, but an integrated year that is built directly into the structure of the course, meaning you can still complete your degree within three years.

In the first year, you will study finance, economics and accounting and will be introduced to computer simulations of securities dealing. Year 2 is spent in Venice studying human resource management, international business strategy, marketing, management accounting and business law. You will also undertake a research project in a finance-related area. In your final year, back at the University of Reading, you will be able to choose modules from a broad selection of finance and management options to tailor your degree towards your own interests.

You will study at the ICMA Centre, part of the triple-accredited Henley Business School, which is ranked 15th in the UK for Accounting and Finance (Complete University Guide, 2018).

It offers integrated theory and practice that will empower you to find your dream job within a large corporation, working in corporate finance, general management or a wide range of other areas. Our dedicated careers team will help you to achieve your goals and secure graduate employment.

You will be attending a renowned academic institution, but there are also many cultural benefits to spending time in Venice, with its vibrant personality and iconic architecture, artworks and canals.

A mentor system will help you to integrate into life at the University and a guidance service offers support and pastoral care, making sure that you can fully enjoy your year abroad.

**Careers**

Jobs in the financial markets, investment banking and securities are generally well paid and highly sought-after.

Henley has an outstanding graduate employment record, reflected in our consistently strong performance in the university league tables. Our statistics show that typically more than 90% of graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduating.

We recognise the importance of career development and have integrated specialist career management into the programme, thereby providing our students with a tool kit to help them achieve their career aspirations.

Our graduates enter the market with a degree that is respected internationally. You will have the knowledge and skills to gain excellent careers in a variety of sectors including the banking, investment and insurance industries or in the finance functions of large enterprises.

• Corporate finance

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Over 2,000 students graduated with a degree in finance in 2015, and a sign of the strength of the finance industry, numbers are on the up. Over half of finance graduates go into the finance industry, with accountancy and financial advice roles particularly popular. It's also quite common for finance graduates to go into jobs which require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications — finance graduates who take further study are more likely to be studying accountancy than finance. About a third of graduates start their careers in London - but Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham are other popular locations for finance graduates to work.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
