Students have their say: 89% satisfaction for Finance degrees
The ICMA Centre has continued to perform very well in the National Student Survey (NSS) with an overall satisfaction level of 89% for BSc Finance & Investment Banking in 2017.
The annual NSS gathers final year students' opinions on the quality of their learning experience, including course teaching, academic support and learning resources.
The ICMA Centre has a global reputation for its excellence in undergraduate finance, and is part of the triple-accredited Henley Business School. Students studying finance have access to practical teaching from a top, global business school, and benefit from a university experience at the University of Reading’s award-winning Whiteknights campus.
The survey revealed student satisfaction results for BSc Finance & Investment Banking were the highest among Henley Business School undergraduate students for the categories of:
- Teaching on my course
- Learning opportunities
- Assessment and feedback
- Organisation and management.
Ioannis Oikonomou, Programme Area Director for Finance Undergraduate Degrees, commented: “We are very proud to have achieved consistently high levels of student satisfaction for our Finance undergraduate degrees. The results demonstrate our dedication to student-led courses that lead to not only a positive university experience, but a strong start to a career in industry.”
