Youll 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, youll 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, youll meet the growing demand for economics that can address and resolve pressing real-world problems.
You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
