Course introduction

The future of business will be a combination of financial awareness and how to manage the benefits of technology, enabling you to combine these skills so that you are prepared to play a key role in organisations of all sizes, as they develop through the 21st Century.

You will have the opportunity to study a comprehensive selection of contemporary issues relating to the banking, finance and technology sectors that can be applied to a wide range of organisations in addition to the financial services sector.
