A foundation year prepares students with knowledge about a particular area of study. Upon completion, many students will choose to enter a full degree program while others may choose to enter the work force.

What is a foundation year in finance? This program prepares individuals for the rigorous curriculum of finance. Programs will differ from school to school, but along with learning the basics of finance, many programs will equip students with the necessary skills required for degree-level study. These may include critically-reflective thinking, reading, and writing skills; report writing; innovative solutions and creative approaches to problems; retrieval and analysis; and data search.

Students who pursue this program often develop enhanced interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a variety of team roles. The program is also beneficial for those who continue on to earn a finance degree because they will likely have a better foundation than some of the other students.

Schools all over the world offer this type of education, and the costs involved can vary quite a bit. Calling the schools and asking about tuition and fees is the best way to know what your financial responsibilities are. Working part-time and receiving scholarships and/or financial aid can help ease the cost burden somewhat.

Common employers include insurance companies, commercial and investment banks, brokerage firms, real estate companies, and other financial intermediary companies. Typical job titles include finance manager, financial analyst, financial consultant, trading analyst, financial planner, logistics analyst, assistant auditor, merchandising executive, money manager, and mortgage banker. Individuals with a finance background are wanted in businesses of all sizes, and there are opportunities all over the world.
