Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Business Management and FinanceAwarded by: Bangor University, UK

Programme Objectives 

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Business Management and Finance programme focuses on combining a specialized stream of modules in finance with a more general business management programme which covers a broad range of business and management disciplines.

Finance addresses the ways in which individuals, businesses and organisations raise, allocate and use monetary resources, taking into account the risks associated with their activities. The goals of each type of user are realised through the use of appropriate financial instruments, such as personal loans and savings accounts, government bonds and company shares, and derivative instruments such as futures, options and swaps. Financial markets are becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated, with managers, traders and analysts continually evolving new methods of packaging and selling assets and securities, offering new combinations of risk and return.

Business Management will give one an understanding of how organisations and managers operate in a global environment while developing the key digital, analytical, problem- solving and interpersonal skills that are attractive to employers. Students will be exposed to management practice, organisation theory and the global business environment, as well as many other aspects of business, like leadership, sustainability, innovation, marketing, operations, human resource management, strategy, new venture creation, finance, adapting to change and e-business. They will study real organisations in order to gain strong business acumen and knowledge of management processes. Whether one wants to be entrepreneurial and setup their own business, or work with international companies, start-ups or not-for-profits or even work for governmental based organisations, this programme will give them the ability and expertise to accelerate their career. Almost all activities that humans undertake benefit from being managed effectively. The functions of management will be placed in the context of Toffler’s famous statement ‘the only constant is change’, so one will learn how to think innovatively in order to behave ethically, sustainably and globally.

Assessment Methods
