The School of Economics and Finance’s undergraduate programmes: BSc Economics and Finance and BSc Economics, Finance and Management, have been recognised and aligned with the Investment Management Certificate (IMC) from the Chartered Financial Analyst Society of the UK (CFA UK).
The IMC accreditation acknowledges the relevance of the two programmes in providing an up-to-date curriculum that endows our graduates with the most appropriate knowledge and skills for a career in the finance and banking sector.
The Investment Management Certificate (IMC) is the most widely recognised and established qualification of its kind in the UK. Students who undertake these BSc programmes can undertake the IMC examinations and obtain the IMC certificate on completion of their studies, adding value to their degree and increasing their employability.
This profession's benchmark entry-level qualification, the IMC is used by most leading investment firms to demonstrate competence for regulatory purposes. The IMC offers an excellent foundation to careers in the investment profession and is an excellent first professional qualification for students wishing to pursue a career in finance. Employers agree that it demonstrates an impressive commitment to the profession.
More information on the IMC and the CFA can be found on the CFA website.
