University of Brighton
Finance and Investment
Students will develop the intellectual and practical skills required for a career in investment, trading, financial analysis, fund management, banking, financial services or financial consultancy. Brighton is one of only a handful of universities in the UK to have a trading room that simulates a real trading environment. Streaming up-to-the-minute data from Reuters, the trading room uses state-of-the-art commercial software to provide the best possible learning environment. The course equips students with a thorough grounding in the theoretical and practical aspects of economics, finance and investment. Specialist options and the dissertation provide opportunities to tailor students' studies to their individual interests and chosen career path.
Individual offers may vary. Degree and/or experience: normally a good honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject is required. Work experience is useful but not essential. Applicants with non-standard entry qualifications may be considered. If the student is unsure whether they meet the entry requirements they should please contact us.
