Business & Finance

If we trace the origin of finance, there is evidence to prove that it is as old as human life on earth. The word finance was originally a French word. In the 18th century, it was adapted by English speaking communities to mean the management of money.” Since then, it has found a permanent place in the English dictionary. Today, finance is not merely a word else has emerged into an academic discipline of greater significance. Finance is now organized as a branch of Economics. This module seeks to develop students’ practical managerial skills within the context of a live business assignment. Students will undertake to act as management consultants, linking with an appropriate industrial or commercial organisation in order to prepare the final consultancy report. Through both practical experience and exposure to appropriate theory, the module will equip students with the key skills of analysis, fact management and contextual decision making.
