This degree aims to develop a student's understanding of banking practice and management, including concepts, theories and analytical tools. It will work to develop abilities to critically analyse, interpret, solve problems, draw independent conclusions and communicate effectively, both individually and as part of a team. It is designed to meet employers’ needs and to create graduates who have a sound grasp of business and good transferable skills. The first year will provide a strong foundation in a set of subjects that will help to build a successful career in the financial services industry, including looking at the core concepts of the monetary system and the principles and regulations governing financial institutions. The second year looks at financial services in both the retail and commercial sectors, and encompasses a work based learning module for students to gain some valued experience and commercial awareness in the field. The final year focusses on risk and wealth management, gaining insight into relationship management, portfolios and taxation planning.
This course is validated by London Institute of Banking and Finance (LIBF) and as such they are involved in the review of applications for the course. By completing your application you are agreeing to your information being shared with the LIBF.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
