When I heard about the BA (Hons) International Business & Finance degree offered by UWS at Imperial College of Business Studies , I was already studying for CIMA Operational level.
So I chose this degree programme to gain maximum out of my time and to save money , since the degree offered 11 exemptions for CIMA plus provided direct entry to the second year of the programme as per my existing qualifications.
As expected I was able to complete both the degree and CIMA qualifications within a shortest time span.
Further, I must say it's been a privilege to learn under a well experienced lecturer panel and an academic friendly environment at Imperial college. Therefore I believe choosing this degree is one of the best choices and investments I have ever made in my life .
