Our Finance programme is unique in Scotland in terms of the range and depth of the finance issues covered. Years 1 to 3 involve detailed coverage of:

  • the principles of investment and value
  • business finance and decision-making
  • analysis of securities such as bonds and shares
  • analysis of financial derivatives such as options, futures and swaps
  • management of risk
  • financial modelling
  • the operations of financial markets and the banking system
  • interpretation of financial statements and evaluating the performance of companies

In the Honours (fourth) year you choose from a number of classes focusing on key areas of finance such as corporate investment, corporate finance, and the pricing and management of financial assets.

You can study Finance in combination with a range of business subjects. Employers tell us that they particularly value the range of subject combinations available at Strathclyde, ensuring that our students have in-depth understanding of a second subject to complement their Finance studies.
