Course summary

This professionally accredited course will prepare you for a fast-paced career in finance. You have access to our virtual trading floor, where you can practice trading stocks and securities on our industry standard Bloomberg Financial Market Labs. You gain a firm understanding of the financial drivers of business and learn how these shape leadership, strategy and planning. You examine finance in an international context, using real-life examples to apply theory to practice and develop your capacity to analyse statistics. By exploring issues surrounding governance and ethics, you graduate with the ability to make sound, responsible financial decisions for the benefit of organisations and their stakeholders. Topics include: the pricing of securities in financial markets; business economics; quantitative methods; financial modelling and portfolio analysis. Your first year ensures you receive a fully-rounded business education by introducing you to topics such as marketing, economics, management and accounting. Essex is one of just three UK universities to have received Q-Step Affiliate status, including for our BSc Finance, to support the way we develop the quantitative skills of our students. This means we can provide work placement bursaries to develop your skills in evaluating numerical evidence, analysing data and designing research. We also offer the opportunity to follow a specialised degree path, where you graduate with enhanced quantitative skills. These are evidenced on your degree transcript to help give you the competitive edge in the graduate job market. This course features the opportunity to undertake a paid work placement year within an external business. Our students have previously gained placements with organisations such as BMW, Samsung and Cummins. BSc Finance is taught at Essex Business School, the largest department at the University of Essex.
