This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation which places us within the top institutions globally for business degrees. Less than 5% of business schools worldwide have attained this hallmark of excellence which recognises a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching and student learning.

This conversion course is ideal for graduates who would like to change subjects or career direction. It has been developed with two key features in mind – the development of a strong capacity in economics in finance, and the ability to apply these skills in practice.  

Furthermore, the modern world increasingly requires an ability to understand these issues in a global context. As a result, this course also addresses key developments in global markets.

It will enable you to develop key technical, analytical and decision-making skills, and also help develop the personal skills you need to succeed in any career: effective teamwork, objective analysis and communication.

There’s an option to undertake work experience as part of the research project, subject to availability, which may particularly appeal if you are changing disciplines or career focus.

You’ll also have the option of undertaking work experience as part of the research project unit, subject to you finding suitable experience.

I’m really looking forward to expanding my knowledge. Post BU, I want to go into financial planning or consulting, because it ties in with my love of economics.

There’s nothing more rewarding than when a student approaches you after a lecture to tell you that they have learned something new.
