Finance and International Relations at Aberdeen brings the strong competitive advantage of your solid grounding in business, management and organisations in the wide context of world events. This programme will increase your understanding of how organisations, states and governments interact against a constantly changing global and economic scene. This will give you an added international dimension to your excellent career prospects.
In Finance, you will explore financial management, corporate and personal finance, financial institutions, derivatives and the stock market. You will analyse and evaluate financial problems and gain the practical skills to understand and use information from financial newspapers and documents. Your knowledge will grow in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School of 45 nationalities, inspired by staff who are leaders in business practice and theory, in small classes with real-life scenarios. You will benefit from the input of employers and the support of dedicated careers advisers. You will also benefit from professional training facilities, such as our virtual Thomson Reuters Eikon trading floor, used by major financial services companies across the world and integrating real activity in financial markets directly into students’ courses.
International Relations will set this in the context of how organisations work, how states interact, what creates global wealth and poverty and why we have inequality and the ever-present concerns of conflict and peace. You will be taught by internationally renowned academics with strong track records in publishing international papers and articles and who appear regularly in the media, commenting on developing world events. You will gain the perfect foundation to add international career possibilities to your appeal to employers in all sectors, adding to all business sectors with options in local and national government, politics, journalism and international development.
