You will gain a thorough understanding of the ways in which financial intermediaries and institutions work, and learn about the structure of financial markets and how they function.

The pathway offers a coherent and principled framework and will equip you with the skills to critically understand current financial and accounting practice.

Future opportunities

I have been impressed with how the modules have been brought to life through the use of up-to-date practical examples and case studies, which relate directly to the subject matter. The application of theory to the business world is important as it provides a practical understanding of how theory can be utilised in the real world.
