Knowledge and skills

By the time you graduate from the BA English and Finance programme, you will:

  • be able to communicate professionally in English, using the language confidently to analyse financial issues
  • have the ability to apply a range of accounting and quantitative techniques
  • have a good working knowledge of financial economics and financial markets.

XJLTU provided me with good English and communication abilities, helping me to quickly fit into the international working environment in London, where I currently work.
