Course Information

By design, this course is a specialist, vocationally orientated course that seeks to educate and prepare students for a range of careers within the Finance professions. However, the nature of finance and its relevance to any and all organisations means graduates will also be in a position to explore other business careers, public sector jobs or pursue their own entrepreneurial ventures. The purpose of the BSc in Finance at Coventry Business School is to provide students with the opportunity to investigate the complexities and challenges facing today’s world financial markets and explore synergies between financial theory and practice. The course enables students to examine in depth, critical issues in finance, which are relevant at all times, but are of particular interest at a time of turbulence in the global financial markets.
