Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Finance is delivered by Cass Business School. Part of City, University of London, Sir John Cass Business School is one of Europe’s leading business schools and is ranked amongst the top 20 business schools in Europe (1). On this course you will gain a broad understanding of the underlying mechanisms of finance that will help equip you with the skills to work in a high-regulated, post-financial crisis world. This course will sharpen your understanding of the broad disciplines involved, from corporate finance to asset pricing, international finance to corporate governance. The jobs are there, and they’re both exciting and well paid. They also demand intellectual rigour and commercial acumen. Select this course and prepare yourself. Throughout your studies, you’ll focus on quantitative methods, enabling you to understand the cutting-edge techniques in use today. Core modules and options allow you to create a bespoke degree that matches your own interests. As a leading global business school in the City of London, we offer all Cass students unrivalled access to the best of global business intelligence and innovation and this is no exception for finance students. You will be taught by world-leading academics who are at the forefront of research in finance, as well as finance professionals who practice at the highest levels of the industry in London and globally. Graduates from BSc (Hons) Finance are well suited to many roles. As practitioners of company valuation techniques, they are valuable in equity research departments and to fund managers. Given their knowledge of the theory and practice of corporate risk management techniques, they are well suited to roles in corporate treasury departments. Their ability to analyse corporate reorganisations, such as mergers and acquisitions, make them ideal candidates for roles in corporate finance advisory teams in investment banks. A key part of this degree is the opportunity to gain professional work experience or a period of study abroad. Students are eligible to apply for a one-year paid work placement which takes places during the third year of a four-year sandwich degree course. Cass students enjoy a wide range of opportunities in business areas such as corporate finance, operations, sales and trading, prime brokerage and hedge funds. Students can also apply to spend a term (or one year) studying abroad at a range of prestigious partner universities including the University of Virginia and Bocconi University, Italy. Studying abroad enables students to expand their international network of contacts, to develop a wider perspective in the world of global finance and to enhance their career prospects. The BSc (Hons) Finance degree is taught alongside the BSc (Hons) Banking and International Finance and BSc (Hons) Investment and Financial Risk Management. Students can switch between degrees at any time during the first one-and-a-half years of the course (subject to availability of places). (1) Financial Times European Business School Ranking 2019
