Why study a Finance degree?
Finance is a hugely important discipline – it’s a vital aspect of all businesses, and helps to shape the world economy. It can also provide a very lucrative career for graduates with a good degree in Finance.
The UK is one of the best countries for studying Finance, and London is, along with New York, the world’s most significant financial hub.
But what are the best universities for Finance?
In the United States, Kaplan partner Pace University enjoys a convenient location in the centre of New York – just around the corner from Wall Street, America’s financial heart. Aside from being in an inspiring location for Finance students, Pace is dual accredited by the AACSB in both Accounting and Business; only 1% of universities worldwide can boast of this prestigious achievement.
Kaplan is also partnered with City, University of London, which is ranked 4th in the UK for Accounting and Finance (Guardian University Guide 2017). City received its name from its location in what is known as the ‘City of London’. This district forms the capital’s business hub, and is particularly famous for financial services.
This has helped City build exceptional relationships with businesses and employers over the years, giving its graduates great job prospects. Degrees on offer at City via a Kaplan pathway course include Banking & International Finance, and Financial Economics.
