About this course

The BSc (Hons) Financial Analysis programme has been designed to meet the increasing demand for quality skills and expertise in the financial services industry.

Focusing on the quantitative aspects of finance, you will learn about equities, fixed-incomes and derivatives markets. You will also explore the applications of mathematical and statistical knowledge to the fields of investment and risk management to meet the dynamic needs of the financial services industry in general.

The solid foundation that we provide allows you to either venture directly into a career in finance and investment or to pursue further studies in quantitative finance. Through this programme, you are prepared for the quantitative aspects of all three levels of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) professional examinations. A CFA charter is the most recognised professional qualification in the finance world and this will set you up for a successful career in finance.
