In these increasingly uncertain times, you may be inclined to study towards a career in a profession that will ensure your future career stability. The University of Bolton’s Business Management (Finance) BSc does just that.
Even in the best of times, finance is paramount in any business. Therefore, the necessity for experts in budgeting and forecasting will always be in demand. In fact, during the past year, the importance of those who understand finances has been thrown into sharp focus.
The role of a financial manager
As a financial business manager, you’ll be helping businesses forecast and budget. Your knowledge of how to navigate finances, ensuring the success of businesses is the lifeblood of the companies you’ll be working for.
Your position within the company is key to businesses’ performance, and the salaries of financial managers reflect this. The average salary of a finance manager in the UK is around £50,000 per annum, according to Glassdoor.
Set your businesses up for success
Alternatively, if you decide to start your own business (as so many do), not only will you be doing so with a strong understanding of business management, but your knowledge of finance will be essential to help your business be a success.
The International Journal of Business and Management found that ‘increases in financial literacy led to more frequent production of financial statements’, and that ‘entrepreneurs who produced financial statements more frequently had a… lower probability to close their venture involuntarily.’ For a business to be successful, financial literacy is key.
