With increased investment in financial technology, growth in the sector in new locations around the world, and a focus on the importance of good financial governance within major corporations, the financial industry is seeing a period of expansion. Against this backdrop, this course is designed to prepare you with the skills and knowledge needed to harness this expansion and have a successful financial career.
Taught over four semesters, the course is split into two distinct, but interrelated stages, with semesters one and two covering finance theory and an understanding of financial institutions, as well as exploring more specific topics such as corporate reporting and financial technologies. Semesters three and four then deepen your learning in specialist areas, developing your skills in econometrics and risk management, as well as investigating good governance and ethics within financial institutions. Across all modules, we aim to use real life examples, to help you bridge the gap between theory and practice, and understand how to apply theories and techniques in different contexts and situations.
Employability is embedded into the course content, with a module , Employability Skills in Finance, dedicated to employability skills within a financial context. Outside of the classroom, this employability focus continues, as you will have access to Coventry University’s Talent Team, who can give tailored advice to support you as you consider your future career.
