The programme is designed to equip you with the skills of a professional economist, for careers in government, international organisations and business.
You will learn to understand and model issues affecting financial markets through the lens of an economist, assessing both the microeconomic impacts for firms, as well as the macroeconomic implications for the global economy.
You will develop advanced theoretical and quantitative skills, highly sought after by employers in the financial services sectors of industry and government, as well as transferable skills that will be of value for a range of other sectors.
There is the opportunity to specialise in various fields of finance. All students register for the MSc in Economics and Finance. However, depending on the choice and availability of modules and dissertation topic, it is possible to graduate with an MSc in Financial Economics instead.
