At some point, we all need to make a financial argument for something. At home this may be a simple request for credit, but at work, businesses need people who can manage budgets and make informed financial cases for projects. Our Business Management and Finance degree will prepare you for a career that can cross any sector or industry - both in and outside of the office. Studying in Chelmsford, in our Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Finance, you'll be part of the Lord Ashcroft International Business School, well-recognised by employers and professional bodies as a centre for innovative business education and training. Teaching facilities include our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab – a bespoke financial trading platform that provides live financial information about companies trading on global stock exchanges. You'll be taught by inspiring specialists, keen to share their wealth of experience and make sure you gain the skills you need for a successful career. Regular guest speakers from industry, commerce and accounting firms will also share their tips of the trade.
Throughout our BSc (Hons) Business Management and Finance course, you’ll benefit from lectures and seminars on career-relevant issues, such as CV preparation, job-hunting, obtaining work experience and using social media. Our dedicated placements and employability support team will give you access to information that’s directly relevant to business management and finance graduates. We’ll encourage you to reflect on your strengths and areas for development, and to make plans to strengthen your skills and experience in preparation for employment. Studying Business Management and Finance is perfect if you want to become an accountant, or go on to further study in financial management. It can also be the basis for a wide range of careers in industry, business and the public sector.
