One of my Accounting academics made me feel welcome before I even started at the University. She answered all my questions, relaxed my anxiety about university and explained how she would support all the students on the course through their time at Salford. She was a very warm and welcoming person and as a result I accepted the Salford offer.Zamzam Ibrahim, BSc Business and Financial Management student
Employability is at the core of every programme offered at Salford Business School. This means the modules included on BSc (Hons) Business and Finance have been developed to meet the current needs of employers.
In the first year of the course, core modules are taught to provide all students with a solid understanding of the key concepts of business and finance. Following your first year, you will develop your understanding of more challenging ideas, your knowledge of the interwoven worlds of business and finance and your individual employability.
Throughout the programme, your decision-making and critical thinking skills will be improved through the integration of real-world examples and the use of facilities such as our Bloomberg Trading Suite.
This innovative module has been nominated for the Course and Curriculum Design award in the 2018 Guardian University Awards. One participant commented “It was thanks to this module that I gained a much better understanding of what employers are looking for and where I stand in comparison to that from the marks and feedback received… This proves to me I do have the experience and competencies sought after by employers. Realising this has really boosted my confidence.”
At the end of year 2, you may choose to undertake either a paid placement or study abroad for a year. If you choose to study abroad you will spend your academic year at one of our partner universities, enhancing your language skills and international business knowledge

Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme.
