Essex’s BSc Finance (including foundation year) is open to Home and EU students. It will be suitable for those holding academic qualifications which do not yet meet Essex’s entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero) on the Essex Business School Pathway, followed by a further three years of study. During the Year Zero, students will study four academic subjects relevant to their chosen course as well as a compulsory English language and academic skills module. BSc Finance students will have access to Essex’s virtual trading floor, where students can trade multiple markets from a single screen with industry leading software, X_TRADER. Students can also use real-world Bloomberg Market Data Feed (B-PIPE), within minutes of it being released, so they can practise making business decisions in the same way they might in the workplace. The course examines international financial markets, as well as how finance shapes leadership, strategy and planning within organisations. Topics may include: the pricing of securities in financial markets; risk management; corporate finance and financial decision making; business economics; quantitative methods; financial modelling; portfolio analysis. By completing this course, students will receive accreditation exemptions from up to nine professional examination papers with The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
