Careers:

The demand for highly skilled and knowledgeable finance professionals shows no signs of abating over the coming years – and in the view of some may well increase. This demand has been instrumental in designing this flexible and challenging suite of programmes. In order to maximise employability the programme learning outcomes are geared towards supplying students with the knowledge, skills and understanding that the finance industry requires. A key component of this is the module "Current Issues in Accounting, Banking & Finance".  

The programme seeks to meet individual and industry needs by developing students with higher-level cognitive skills and abilities who also possess an excellent practical understanding of "how to apply" rather than just "why it happens". The programme includes a 20 credit optional Professional Work Experience module, which involves a minimum 4 week work placement to take place outside the teaching semesters. Students are expected to organise their own placement and all such placements must be substantive and at an appropriate level. These placements will involve "employer" input and must be approved by the Programme Director prior to commencement. Alternatively students with appropriate managerial level experience within an appropriate field can apply for "Recognition of this Prior Experiential Learning". 

The School of Management has opportunities for successful graduates to apply for M.Phil./ PhD study within the School.
