Strong basis in finance and economics

The Finance and Economics degree is awarded by BUV, with option by the end of Year 1 for dual award by Staffordshire University and BUV. For dual degree, students will have met the learning outcomes from both awards and have achieved two sets of credit upon successful completion.

This programme aims to provide students with a strong basis for a future career in finance and economics related fields of work, where skills in both areas are required. At its core is the notion of Finance and Economics being about transformation, of individuals and their lives and of organizations and communities, and the role that our graduates will have in those communities as business transformers.

There will be engagement with employers, a focus on real-life scenarios and activities to foster understanding of the integrated nature of business functional areas. With the focus and development of employability skills being a cornerstone, the programme guides students to acquire and understand academic knowledge as well as and enable them to confidently apply this knowledge in practice through being adept communicators, good team workers, having good interpersonal skills, being critical (and able to accept and build on criticism), having the ability to solve problems, make decisions and being able to manage their own time.
