The innovators of the 21st century will think across arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with a breadth of skills and qualities that enable them to work across specialisms and cultures.

This course combines in-depth subject specialism in finance with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. In conjunction with your financial studies, you will apply your subject knowledge by translating ideas into innovative solutions which may include plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.

The ability to adapt and contribute to innovation is highly sought after in the financial services industry, which has historically been hit by waves of disruptive innovation. Recent examples include high-frequency trading, crowdfunding, robo-advisors, and crypto assets such as Bitcoin. Sharing its core content with the BSc in Finance, the Finance with Innovation programme offers rigorous and practical training in all areas of finance, with a focus on the quantitative techniques that are required for a successful career in the financial services industry and beyond, including economic consultancy, government departments, central banks and regulatory agencies. Graduates from the programme will also be well-placed to pursue postgraduate studies in specialist Masters' programmes at the best international universities.

You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines, such as geography, film and television and history. Each subject contributes a different perspective on a challenge as you identify needs and develop ideas. By drawing on your unique ideas and views on the world, you will learn from your subject and other students to develop innovative solutions together.

By the time you graduate you will have a portfolio of work ranging from live client projects to planning your own entrepreneurial venture. You will have learned how to evaluate the potential of your product or service and how to finance it, and you will have a network of peers and advisers who have worked with you along the way.
