This programme runs at Coventry University London Campus in October (3 year course) and January (accelerated 2.5 year course).
This programme is primarily geared to students who want to build a successful career in the finance industry. Graduates from this programme have gone on to work as Financial Advisers, Finance Managers, Management Accountants, and Financial Analysts or in other positions within the finance industry.
Coventry University London Campus location in the heart of the City of London, within the world famous Square Mile means that students are surrounded by some of the pillars of the world’s economy such as the Bank of England, the London Stock Exchange and a number of top finance companies. This can give students a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded professionals and to visit key financial institutions.
The highly practical programme provides the framework to enable successful graduates to prepare for the world of work. It offers students the opportunity to undertake work-related activities such as business simulations and internships.
