BA (Hons) Business Management with Finance

Apply From: 15th of September 2015
Application Deadline:
Start Date: 11th of September 2017

Want to get a great head start in business and finance? This degree has been designed in collaboration with some of the biggest names in industry, including Lloyds of London. 

Finance is the language of business and the key performance indicator of commercial success. That means employers aren’t just looking for business graduates that are numerate, they want people who can interpret financial data and use that information to make winning business decisions.  

This degree will help you do just that, whether you’re interested in a financial role or a more general career in business. It will prepare you for all kinds of sectors including accountancy, banking, investment, insurance and procurement, as well as non-financial roles. Financial skills are always valued and will give you a big advantage in today’s increasingly competitive job market.  

You’ll learn from leading academics and companies, through industry-led workshops, guest lectures, internships and a company-based mentor, as well as traditional lectures and seminars. Giving you the perfect balance of academic theory and practical experience, a strong grounding in business and management and the opportunity to specialise in finance.

You'll learn from a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, each designed to bring the world of business to life using real world examples from our industry partners : VIEW COURSE MODULE INFORMATION

What are the entry requirements?

Our typical UCAS tariff entry is 120 points (BBB at A level) or equivalent. However, we’re really looking for people with a passion for their subject so if you do not have the UCAS tariff points you need, or traditional entry qualifications, you can still apply through our assessment-based entry route. You’ll be invited to a Professional Workshop to see if we’re the right fit for you.

What are the fees?

Full time undergraduate fees are £9,250. All students that attend and pass a Creative/Professional Workshop will be awarded a partial tuition fee waiver, up to the maximum fee loan available for the programme. The workshops are a great opportunity to meet other students and get to know Pearson Business School/Escape Studios and our fee waiver can significantly reduce your tuition fees.
