University of Westminster

Global Finance

The course is designed to provide students with expertise in international finance and enable them to pursue a career within the finance profession; as well as the strong disciplinary base in international finance, students draw on other cognate disciplines including accounting, quantitative methods and economics, and so are able to work with specialists in other areas and present findings and analysis to non-specialists; the course is open to people with no detailed prior knowledge of international finance, although this is desirable; students have access to a significant resource in the financial markets suite, which uses the Bloomberg computer system to monitor real-time financial market movements and trends.
