Management and Finance

In the 1st semester, an all-round grounding in the essentials of business and management, based on the most up-to-date understanding of management theory and good practice. The 2nd semester then focuses more directly on the specialist areas of financial markets and investment and corporate financial management. These are the white-hot topics of the moment in the business world. Studying them equips students for career opportunities either working directly in the financial sector or in business areas where a sophisticated understanding of the workings of finance is essential. Outside activities include managerial field trips, case study visits, outward-bound skills development activities, managerial reporting and liaison with professionals in business and industry.
