This course is designed to provide you with a strong background in economic principles as well as knowledge of the financial foundations of firms, financial markets and institutions with an international perspective.
As part of your study of economics and finance you will develop skills in the organization and analysis of statistical data, the interpretation of economic issues and the communication of economic and financial concepts.
Practical activities aim to equip you with a holistic understanding of how an organisation functions, with specific emphasis on key issues such as how organisations are financially structured and how they manage their cash flows.
The foundation year (level 3) is designed to equip applicants who do not have the required qualifications to enter onto level 4, with a robust toolkit of the academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education and also with an understanding of, and insight to, the economic and finance discipline. Successful completion of the foundation year will allow progression onto level 4 of BSc (Hons) Economics and Finance.
