Course content

MSc International Business Finance Economics is designed to provide a general training in economics, whilst allowing you to specialise in the areas of international business and finance.

This course fits into our Applied Training Programme which is designed to provide training in new and vocationally attractive skills in Economics. It is appropriate either for graduates with no economics background who wish to understand how markets work and to develop the analytical skills of an economist, or for graduates in economics who wish to develop specialist expertise without committing to full research training. This course provides training that places specialist areas in a wider economic context and shows how the insight from economics can improve workplace performance.

You will develop skills in statistical analysis, especially those applicable to financial data, as well as investigating the motivation, financial practices, and consequences of international business.

The academic staff who teach on the programme include international experts in several areas of economics and individuals with practical experience of finance.

The programme should appeal to those who wish to pursue a career in the areas of finance, management or international business.

You will take compulsory modules in core economic theory and concepts, finance, financial econometrics, and the operation of multinational firms.

You will also have the opportunity to study modules in international business and finance which offer theoretical and applied training in these fields. There will also be an element of the application of quantitative techniques.
