STUDYING FINANCE AND MANAGEMENT AT SOAS
The Department of Financial and Management Studies (DeFiMS) is dedicated to
both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and to advanced research in the
fields of management, finance and related subjects. We believe that in this period of
rapid change in those regions we specialise on, understanding the principles and
problems of both management and finance is essential. Globalisation of financial
markets makes it important for researchers to analyse both the risks and profitability
of capital markets, money markets and banks - from Wall Street to emerging
markets. As large firms increase their global operations and implement new
technology, research into management, including corporate governance, corporate
funding strategies, and value-chain management is increasingly important
throughout the world.
By promoting both the research of our faculty members and our teaching
programmes in Finance and Management, we ensure that the undergraduate and
postgraduate degrees offered by the Department of Financial and Management
Studies are at the forefront of modern knowledge in their fields. We are committed
to combining that high level of academic research with professionalism and expertise
in modern methods of teaching and learning.
Besides the facilities available within SOAS, studying for a degree with the
Department of Financial and Management Studies means drawing on the expertise
of the City of London, one of the world’s leading financial centres. SOAS is located
close to the world-spanning banks, financial markets and investment houses of
London and is at the heart of London’s continuous flow of financial data, news and
financial research. The BSc and MSc programmes call upon experts throughout
SOAS and from positions within London-based commerce, finance and government.
It also provides research training for students planning careers in consulting or
academia.

Open Options
Your programme of study may permit you to take one or more
‘open options’ -courses taught by other departments at SOAS.
You can access an up-to-date list of open options on the SOAS
website at
http://www.soas.ac.uk/lanquaqecultures/req/oo/. You can also
access this page on your mobile device by scanning the barcode opposite.
HELP, ADVICE AND SOURCES OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION
There are many different sources of help and advice available to students: it is very
important that you make use of the support systems if you need to do so. Small,
easily solved problems may grow rapidly into big, difficult ones if nothing is done
about them. Such difficulties are particularly common in the first year.
Student Department Officers
The Department of Financial and Management Studies has a specific Student
Department Officer: an administrative member of staff who should be the first port of
call for administrative issues pertaining to your studies. They will be able to answer
queries relating to your timetable, class arrangements, coursework assignments and
examinations, among other areas. The contact details for the Student Department
Officer can be found under the ‘key contacts’ section at the back of this handbook.
Personal Advisors
All students within the Department are allocated a Personal Advisor: an academic
member of staff who should be the first port of call for academic and pastoral issues
affecting your studies. You will be informed who your Personal Advisor is at the start
of your studies at SOAS. If you need to check who your Personal Advisor is, please
feel free to contact your Department Officer, who will be able to supply this
information.
Email
Students should check their SOAS email account regularly as important information
about your degree and/or courses will be sent from tutors and the faculty office.
Details of how to forward messages automatically to another email account (e.g.
hotmail) are given in the Faculty Handbook and the Students Union Handbook.
SID (Student Information Desk) - www.soas.ac.uk/sid/
The Student Information Desk (SID) aims to help students make the very best of
their time at SOAS by providing a high-quality information and enquiry service which
is accessible to all students.
SID is the first point of contact for advice and support for current students from
Registry, Fees and Scholarships, Exams, Graduation, Faculties and more.
Bloomsbury Learning Environment
The Bloomsbury Learning Environment (BLE) is used by tutors for making reading
lists and other course information and announcements available online. It is also
where you will submit assignments. You can access the BLE at http://ble.soas.ac.uk/.
You should check the course pages for your courses on BLE regularly, as this is


where important announcements relating to your courses (e.g. class reschedulings,
information on coursework assignments, etc.) are posted.
Timetable
Students should check the up-to-date undergraduate timetable by referring to
www.soas.ac.uk/timetable or by scanning the barcode opposite with your mobile
device (smartphone or tablet). If you find that your core courses clash you should
consult the Faculty Office (R201) for advice.
Term Dates
The SOAS term dates can be found on the SOAS website at
http://www.soas.ac.uk/about/kevdates/.
Student Representatives, Departmental Meeting and the Staff-Student Forum
Each year student representatives are elected for the BSc, MSc and PhD
programmes. Representatives are invited to attend departmental meetings of the
academic staff and to raise matters of concern. The forum is the means by which
students representatives and staff can raise issues relating to specific courses and
teaches, whereas the department meeting deals with more general issues. There are
separate staff-student forums for BSc, MSc and PhD representatives. They meet at
least once a term. The BSc staff-student forum is made up of student
representatives, Undergraduate Tutors and the Head of Department. You will be
given more information on the election of student representatives at the beginning of
the first term.
STUDENT REGULATIONS
Definitive regulations governing the award of undergraduate
degrees can be found online at
http://www.soas.ac.uk/reqistrv/deqreerequlations/. Alternatively,
scanning the barcode opposite will allow you to access this site
on your mobile device.
Please pay particular attention to the following sections:
Class Attendance Requirements: In order to benefit fully from their courses,
students are expected to attend all relevant and/or required classes, which include,
as appropriate to the course, lectures, tutorials, seminars, language classes, and
practical sessions.
Coursework Submission: All coursework should be submitted online via the
submission points on the relevant course pages on the BLE (http://ble.soas.ac.uk/).
Coursework Deadlines: The School Deadline for submission of coursework
assignments is 16.00 on the Friday immediately before the beginning of the
May/June examination period of the academic year in which the course is taken. Any
coursework assignments submitted after this date will not be marked. Individual
courses set submission dates in advance of this deadline, however; assignments
submitted between the individual assignment submission date and the School
deadline will incur a penalty of two marks every day that the assignment is submitted
21


late. Individual assignment submission dates can be found on the relevant course
pages on the BLE (http://ble.soas.ac.uk/).
It is possible to apply for a refund of marks deducted for late submission if you have
particular mitigating circumstances (e.g. sudden illness, bereavement, etc.) which
prevented you from submitting your assignment on time. In any case where you feel
you may not be able to meet a particular deadline you should contact your student
support officer as soon as possible.
Coursework Word Limits: Coursework assignments which exceed the set word
limit will be penalised as described in this section. Individual assignment word limits
can be found on the relevant course pages on the BLE (http://ble.soas.ac.uk/).
Plagiarism: You should note that plagiarism - i.e. the presentation of another
person's thoughts or words as though they were your own - is an examination and/or
assessment offence, and is dealt with under the School’s Regulations for
proceedings in respect of assessment and examination offences.
MARKING CRITERIA
Please see below for the marking criteria (competence standards) for coursework
assignments. These criteria for all SOAS undergraduate programmes draw upon the
following minimum “core” criteria, which are applicable to the assessment of most or
all assignments:
• understanding of the subject;
• utilisation of proper academic [or other] style (e.g. citation of references, or
use of proper legal style for court reports, etc.);
• relevance of material selected and of the arguments proposed;
• planning and organisation;
• logical coherence;
• critical evaluation;
• comprehensiveness of research;
• evidence of synthesis;
• innovation / creativity / originality.
The language used must be of a sufficient standard to permit assessment of the
above criteria.
These minimum core criteria form a part of the School’s core academic standards,
applied to all coursework and as such they would not usually be subject to any
modification, even as a “reasonable adjustment” to the needs of a specific disabled
person.

3 STUDYING FINANCE AND MANAGEMENT AT SOAS The Department of Financial and Management Studies (DeFiMS) is dedicated to both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and to advanced research in the fields of management, finance and related subjects . We believe that in this period of rapid change in those regions we specialise on, understanding the principles and problems of both management and finance is essential. Globalisation of financial markets makes it important for researchers to analyse both the risks and profitability of capital markets, money markets and banks from Wall Street to emerging markets. As large firms increase their global operations and implement new technology, research into management, including corporate governance, corpora te funding strategies, and value chain management is increasingly important throughout the world. By promoting both the research of our faculty members and our teaching programmes in Finance and Management, we ensure that the undergraduate and postgraduat e degrees offered by the Department of Financial and Management Studies are at the forefront of modern knowledge in their fields. We are committed to combining that high level of academic research with professionalism and expertise in modern methods of te aching and learning. Besides the facilities available within SOAS, studying for a degree with the Department of Financial and Management Studies means drawing on the expertise cated close to the world spanning banks, financial markets and investment houses of financial research. The BSc and MSc programmes call upon experts throughout SOAS and from positions within London based commerce, finance and government. It also provides research training for students planning careers in consulting or academia. UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE STRUCTURES T here are seven categories of undergraduate degree s available in D eFiMS : BSc International Management (China) BSc International Management (China) (Year Abroad) BSc I nternational Management (Japan and Korea) BSc International Management (Japan) (Year Abroad) BSc International Management (Middle East & North Africa) BSc International Management (Middle East & North Africa) (Year Abroad) BA International Management and South East Asian Studies (3 years) BA International Management and South Asian Studies (3 years) BA International Management and South Asian Studies (4 year s) These are described in the Structure Diagrams on pages 5 15 of this guide. For information on the individual courses offered as part of these degrees, please see the note at the bottom of page 1 5 of this guide.
