Bachelor of Business (Finance)

R2/343/6/0155 (12/24) – MQA/SWA0096

Finance is a fast-growing field of employment. It has roots in accounting and economics, but has developed its own unique framework and knowledge base. Financiers inform business decision-makers on the best courses of action for the financial profit and security of the organisation. Working on a wider scale than accountants, they analyse and assess financial forecasts, the value of a company, the investment opportunities open to them and the value of shares and bonds. Students of this program will learn to analyse and assess financial forecasts and the value of companies, to investigate investment opportunities, and to examine the values of shares and bonds.
