Regents University London

Business and Finance BA Hons with Integrated Foundation

For January 2022 entry, this course is titled BA (Hons) Global Management (Finance) with Integrated Foundation. All other course details remain the same. 

This integrated foundation year has been specially designed to give you the introductory knowledge and business skills needed to confidently progress to degree-level study.  

The Foundation year is structured around an entrepreneurial challenge, with modules that introduce the transferable skills you will need at degree level and beyond.  

Once you have successfully completed your foundation year, you will progress to the first year of BA (Hons) Business and Finance. 

You’ll gain a solid grounding in management principles, together with a broad set of business skills. Building upon this foundation, you’ll develop specialist knowledge in your chosen course.  

About this course

Finance plays a fundamental role in every organisation – whether it’s a global brand or a new start-up. This course offers a holistic insight into financial management and fintech – developing your skills as a financer while giving you the confidence to manage teams internationally. 

Explore the financial parameters of business planning, learning core competencies like analytics, economics, politics, law, global banking and strategic management, while examining the structure of financial corporations and how they function – gaining a thorough understanding of how financial intermediaries and institutions work hand-in-hand with businesses, both big and small. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to explore alternative approaches to finance, other than the current Western standards, and consider the influence and impact of emerging financial technologies – developing your ability to innovate and manage change, globally. 

Practical, experience-based simulations and challenges with industry experts will expose you to real-world business issues and give you the strategic skills to combat them. 

You’ll have the option to undertake an independent placement or enterprise project to gain further industry experience, or you can study abroad for a term at one of Regent’s international partners to broaden your understanding of management and enterprise in a global context. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn a new language – preparing you to work in an international arena.
