Academic Courses

The Ted X Bath team have produced a simple guide on a few Academic courses that some of our readers may find useful.

Firstly, the BSc International Business and Finance course

The BSc International Business and Finance course  has become hugely popular among fledgling business students is one of the most comprehensive and detailed courses from this sector of education.

The course is now being offered by more universities than ever before as it is seen as the perfect qualification for all those students wishing to work in the international business and finance sector. The course itself is three years in duration and requires potential students to have at least a GCSE in English, math as well as A level grades in the same subjects. In year one the student will undertake a wide variety of topic modules which cover many of the main aspects of the international business world.

The first year the student will learn all about Mathematics and Statistics for Business, Principles of International Business, Introduction to Financial Accounting, Foundations of Finance, Current Topics in International Business, Organizational Behavior and the Economic theory of International Business. All these modules will be classroom based and will require the student to complete various coursework both at the university as well as a large amount of out of hour studies. Resources of interest are the Law Society as well as The Guardian Law pages, as well as Finance based resources such as The Bank Of England as well as The London Stock Exchange website.

The second year will commence with the student learning many different sectors of the business world where they will be required to show full competency in all aspects of the sector. The topic modules for year two will consist of Business Finance, Management Accounting, Managing International Business, International Economic Environment, Marketing and Organizations and the Human Resource. Again the student will be required to complete many different course work related to these subjects where they will need to show a full understanding of all aspects they have learnt during the year.

The third and final year of this course sees the students plunged into their hardest set of tasks to date as they will cover many complex topics which run in the international business world. The topical modules encased in year three will be International Strategic Management, Managing across Cultures, Transitional Corporations in the World Economy, Business Ethics, Capital Market Theory, International Banking and Finance, Corporate Governance, Financial Accounting Theory, Auditing and Information Systems and International Business Finance. As well as the student needing to complete all these modules they will be required to write a ten thousand word dissertation on the subject of International Business. All the course work as well as the dissertation will be marked and scored by an external educational body with the results being added to the students final grades.

At the end of the course the student will be required to sit a final set of exams which will be organized and marked by an external educational authority. On completion of the course the successful student will find a wealth of employment opportunities available to them in many disciplines of the business world. These can include working in banks as a personal advisor or business manager or perhaps for private or corporate companies depending on the student’s preference. There are alternative courses such as the well established and highly recommend MSC Finance educational course as well as MA and BA equivalents such as a Banking and Law Degree or the MSc Accounting and Finance course.
