Course content

Huddersfield Business School is excited to announce a new portfolio of courses that are currently being formalised. These are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to be influential and successful in a rapidly changing global environment.

Our new portfolio covers a wide variety of subject areas offering courses in traditional business and management alongside new and innovative topics. Although this specific course will not be available in 2019, a similar range of courses will follow covering contemporary topics that suit the changing external environment. Our new courses should be available to view online from mid-November, however in the meantime please do get in touch if you would like to enquire about any of our Business School courses.

This course is an ideal progression if you have completed an undergraduate degree in a relevant area of accountancy, business, economics or finance, and wish to pursue a career in modern, international financial markets. It will help develop your understanding of the important issues facing banking, financial and economics systems, and the regulatory framework that supports financial markets.

The course has a strong focus on enhancing your management opportunities in areas such as investment banking, retail banking and other financial institutions. You will also have the opportunity to develop critical insights through guest speakers from the commercial world. Organisations such as RBS and Yorkshire Bank have previously provided guest lectures to inform our students of current practice and development, covering aspects such as risk management, as well as offering career development and networking opportunities.

Our focus is on using varied teaching and assessment methods to help develop a wide range of academic, analytical, presentation and practical skills in our students. Teaching methods include; lectures, seminars, workshops, student-led discussions, group projects and presentations, case study analysis and advanced level accounting exercises, and e-learning.

Our strong connections with the financial world are demonstrated through our ‘Partners in Accountancy’ scheme, which links you with accountancy firms of national and international repute.

You will be taught by staff with extensive experience as practitioners; with knowledge in businesses, the commercial sector (including banking) and the professional bodies. Some of our staff are members of, and hold positions within, professional bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
