Course Introduction

The Business with Finance BSc (Hons) pathway combines a business management degree with the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of finance.

This degree is right for you if you want to pursue a career in the finance sector and you’re keen to apply a range of general management skills. The focus on finance makes you exceptionally well equipped to take your place in the finance operation of a large company or to work in the financial services sector.

You will gain a sound understanding of the various elements of running a business and managing an organisation, with a thorough grounding in finance. You will learn about financial markets and the finance processes within an organisation, but can also understand topics related to management and strategy in the context of the finance sector.

You will study introductory modules in a wide range of business subjects, such as accounting, marketing, operations management and human resources. You will gain a good grounding in economics and econometrics and also have an opportunity to pursue more specialist elective subjects which could cover areas such as asset management and mergers and acquisitions.

The Business with Finance pathway will prepare you for a financial career in any large or medium-sized business, where the combination of management skills and financial understanding make you an invaluable asset.

There are five Business Mangement degree pathways taught at Cass Business School: BSc Business Management, BSc Business with Finance, BSc Business with Marketing, BSc Business Management, Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship and BSc International Business. At any time during the first-one-and-a-half years of the degree, students can switch to a different pathway, subject to the availability of places. Some restictions may apply if the student is spending part of the second year on a study abroad scheme.

Course Modules

Core modules, common to all the business management degrees, provide a solid grounding in the principles and practice of all fundamental aspects of business management.

Core modules on the Business Management pathway include: Introduction to Management; Fundamentals of Marketing; Technology and Innovation Management; Introduction to Finance; Introduction to Entrepreneurship; Human Resources Management; Business in Society.

A choice of specialised electives is offered in years two and three to strengthen your knowledge and skills and to introduce you to the most recent trends and issues in their theory and practice. Third year electives cover a range of topics and are not restricted to the specialist areas represented by the individual degree pathways.

In year three, you are expected to complete a final-year project which must be related to their specialism in finance. The project provides an opportunity to carry out independent work and to and to apply concepts which have been learned during the course to a practical business issue. It also provides you with a chance to go beyond the course content in studying a particular subject that might be of interest.
