|"Financial services is a vitally important sector of the Jersey, UK and global economies and offers excellent employment prospects for graduates"|
► Degree Programme Director's Welcome
The University Centre is a welcome addition to the spectrum of offerings from the Jersey International Business School and it clearly defines the undergraduate and post-graduate study options available.
Located in the heart of St Helier, in Jersey, Channel Islands, the business school is already renowned for meeting the Island’s needs with quality business education as the exclusive provider of a number of professional qualifications recognised internationally by the financial services industry. Such experience has now been extended to an undergraduate market by combining academia and industry knowledge.
I am delighted that in collaboration with The University of Buckingham, the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, we are able to offer such a unique degree opportunity, whereby both younger and mature students can achieve a full BSc (Hons) degree in International Financial Services over a two year period.
Historically, alumni at the school have had an extensive relationship with the International Compliance Association (ICA) and through that relationship The Manchester University Business School made JIBS their nominated centre for two new degree programmes in Jersey back at the start of 2011, before the school was even one year old. As a result of this relationship, students have been progressing with BSc (Hons) Management with Compliance and, BSc (Hons) Management with Trusts and Estates.
Jersey is one of the world’s leading international financial centres and it also offers one of the most beautiful campus experiences in the world. We invite you to explore the University Centre website and find out for yourself how we could help you to shape the future you deserve.
