The combination of a strong economics background with a financial specialisation is in high demand in the jobs market. This programme prepares you for work as a professional economist in the financial and banking sector, public sector and international organisations by providing an education in advanced economic and finance theory and econometric methods. It includes core modules in financial econometrics, financial markets and instruments, and the financial economics of asset pricing, reflecting the Schools research expertise in finance.
Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is aimed at motivating you to achieve your full potential. All MSc students take a module in Research Methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for MSc-level research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our Master's programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics.
