Business and Economics
Regent's University London
The BA (Hons) Global Management with pathways degree is carefully structured to offer you an integrated and holistic approach to management studies. It builds your skills across five complementary areas of business practice, after which you follow a specialist pathway.
The Global Financial Management pathway combines two areas of financial management expertise: finance and accounting. It will enable you to discuss and analyse with confidence the financial parameters of business planning, performance and evaluation.
You will gain a thorough understanding of the ways in which financial intermediaries and institutions work, and learn about the structure of financial markets and how they function.
Why should I choose this programme?
Finance plays a crucial role in any organisation, and is fundamental to management decision-making. Global financial managers must have expertise not only in gathering and recording relevant data, but in the analysis and interpretation of information to aid and direct business planning.
The Global Financial Management pathway offers a coherent and principled framework and will equip you with the skills to critically understand current financial and accounting practice.

From Term 4 onwards, you will be on your chosen pathway, studying a range of core and specialist modules.
In your final year, in addition to your pathway modules, you will have the choice of a wide range of elective modules.
In Term 4 there is an opportunity to undertake a period of study abroad.
Work placement option
In Term 5 and 6, you can choose to undertake a work placement*, adding another year to your studies. Such experience offers you the chance to apply your learning in a real work setting and is highly valued by potential future employers.
Our specialist careers advisers will help you in finding a work placement linked to your chosen pathway and support you throughout your placement.
The experience you gain during your placement will feed directly into the Research Project that you complete in the final year of the programme.
*This is a new option which is subject to approval. First placements will take place in 2015. Students undertaking a work placement cannot also participate in the Gateway Programme.
