Course summary

Offering the chance to learn about the banking industry, as well as gain a background in other key financial areas, our degree is focused on providing you with the skills and knowledge needed to have a career in the banking sector. Delivered by professional academic staff who have industry experience, the applied nature of the course should help to prepare you to work in the fast-paced banking and finance industry. For instance, the Applied Banking Case Study module allows you to work on real case studies covering specific issues faced by banks in the global banking environment, forcing you to apply your knowledge to make recommendations on how to solve problems that could be encountered in a future career within the sector. Employability is a key concern not only within the course’s modules, but also in the support offered, which can cover sessions on CV writing and mock interviews with Business Futures, our employability team, to attendance at events such as Careers in Banking, which in 2019 saw guest speakers from a range of institutions provide advice and guidance on a career in the sector. As a student of Coventry Business School, you will also have access to our Trading Floor, which is currently one of the largest academic Trading Floors in Europe, and incorporates a variety of analytical, news and data platforms to give you a first-hand experience of industry-standards tools. There is also opportunity for international experiences as part of the course, either on fieldtrips specifically related to course content, or through Business School or University wide trips (subject to availability, fees apply). The international nature of the modern banking industry is also considered, with every module looked at from a global perspective. **Key Course Benefits**- The opportunity to increase your employability by gaining hands on experience of market leading financial databases such as Thomson Reuters Eikon, Bloomberg, Fitch Connect, Thomson Reuters Datastream, and Bereau ba Dijk Fame.- Access to Coventry Business School’s Trading Floor, the largest of its kind in Europe. - Bespoke employability modules, Employability Skills in Finance 1 and 2, are designed to help you as you apply for internships, placements and graduate jobs in the banking and finance sector.- Support from the Business Schools employability team, Business Futures, who offer support and guidance to help you secure placements and graduate jobs, including mock interviews and CV workshops. - Modules focused on key topics within the banking industry, giving you the opportunity to understand contemporary issues related to the sector.- Opportunity to study an Add+vantage module each year; allowing you to specialise in a subject not related to banking or finance, such as a language, giving you that added extra when applying for jobs in an international industry.- Guest lectures and sessions from the banking industry, alongside course input from leading financial organisations such as CFA UK and CII. - Access to Coventry Business School’s Progress Coaches, who can support your progress throughout your degree.
