Course summary

Studying finance involves the investigation of how company managers and investors make financial decisions, how they manage risk and how financial markets function. The course addresses issues such as: how do stock markets work? How can I make money by trading futures and options? What would be the implications for Britain of adopting the Euro? How can companies reduce foreign exchange risk? Do shareholders benefit from corporate takeovers? Does corporate governance matter? Why do financial crises occur? What types of securities should be included in an investment portfolio? Finance teaching at Stirling is highly rated and you will gain a thorough grounding in the theoretical and analytical skills needed for a career in corporate finance, investment management or financial services. The course has five distinctive attributes:•It provides the opportunity to study finance in depth while also providing a broad understanding of the wider business environment. •The curriculum is regularly updated and so includes the latest developments in finance theory and practice, providing graduates with a cutting edge in the jobs market. •Reflecting the global nature of finance, the course is taught by staff from many different countries, bringing a wealth of experience into the classroom. •The course allows for flexible study. Students can switch to a related degree course at any stage up to the mid point in their studies. They can also combine finance with another subject. •Students on the finance course have the option of studying for a semester at a partner University in Europe or at Universities in North America, Asia and Australasia.Do you enjoy numbers the way others enjoy music, poetry or art? Mathematical training develops both specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions; and there is a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills, but also know how to use them. Our courses deliver that sought-after combination – both through our teaching style and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For instance, you will use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as much experimental as theoretical. Our Mathematics and Statistics department provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment and we have a strong and active research group. Its major interest is the application of mathematics to biology, economics and life sciences, and we offer combined Honours degrees in the relevant disciplines.
