The Business Management (Finance) BA (Hons) is a University of Derby approved course which provides an excellent progression route for those who have studied Business or Accountancy related subjects at level 3 or A Levels.

Our BA (Hons) Business Management (Finance) gives you the insights, skills, and credibility to succeed. You’ll learn how to take strategic decisions in today’s multi-cultural business arena and later in year two and three will look at more finance related topics.

This is a broad-based degree looking at all the key business functions in a financial context. You will, for example, cover the laws relating to international business transactions and taxation, the complex nature of global supply chains, how to manage financial resources and law for accounting.

Covering financial statement analysis and business economics, you will study the specialist areas of management finance. Through case studies, discussions, and practical learning styles, you will study current business issues and analyse where things are going wrong, what could be done, and discuss what you would do. Throughout the course you will use current case studies and examples and will also benefit from specialist lectures by guest speakers from the business industry and professional bodies. We will prepare you for the workplace as you develop the skills employers are looking for in their graduate employees - from report writing and analysis through to presentation skills. This course is also approved by CIMA, CIM and CIPD offering you further exemptions from future professional exams.
