Finance - accelerated BFin (Hons)
Learn how companies use funds to generate income and increase wealth and also examine how organisations manage assets, funds, and liabilities
Dundee City Campus
Our January start option allows you to achieve our quality Honours degree in 3.5 years (42 months) of study. We are excited to offer this option as an alternative to the United Kingdom tradition of starting degrees in September.
Starting in January allows you to prepare fully for travels to Dundee and removes the time pressure of arranging visas, travel, and finances as well as English language requirements. Of course, you may also want to start in January so that you can have a short break before returning to study. Starting in January also has a financial benefit. You pay lower fees in your first year and you enter the job market after only three and a half years.
This course examines how large corporations use their funds to generate income and wealth in the future. You’ll learn how UK and overseas capital markets work in the wealth creation process and understand the context around their importance in the global economy.
The globalisation of products and financial markets, the changing nature of information technology, and dynamic new transaction models are creating a growing need for well-qualified graduates.
Our Finance degree looks at the wider management and planning of assets, whereas our Accountancy degree looks more at the recording and reporting of financial transactions within a company.
