You’ll look at micro and macroeconomics and the methodology of econometric research, whilst acquiring a solid grounding in corporate finance and the financial economics tools commonly used in financial services, quantitative investment analysis and research. The Economics and Finance course is offered by University of Leeds.
Taught by highly qualified staff with research and consultancy expertise in economics and finance, you’ll take an open-minded approach to economic problems, studying current mainstream theoretical and applied techniques alongside a range of alternative critical perspectives.
In this post-financial-crisis era, in which some previously held conventional wisdom has come under criticism, you’ll meet the growing demand for economics that can address and resolve pressing real-world problems.
