You explore topics including: why banks exist and how they operate in the modern economy; current issues in modern banking; banking sector regulation; the global financial system and the role of the investor, analyst, academic and policy maker. Completion of our course provides you with some accreditations and exemptions from The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

Your first year ensures you experience a fully-rounded business education by introducing you to topics such as accounting, management, marketing and economics. You spend your third year on placement, giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market by providing you with key contacts within the industry. In recent years, our students have gained placements with BMW, Samsung and Cummins. Through our Q-Step Affiliate Status, we offer you the opportunity to develop your quantitative skills by taking a specialised degree pathway or receiving a student bursary to go on a quantitative work placement. Q-Step is funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
