Course content

This programme prepares students to work as economists in the Civil Service, a leading bank, a multinational organisation or an insurance company. It is also an ideal choice for anybody who sees his or her future as an analyst for a major investment company.

The programme is designed to provide an understanding of economic and financial theory, together with specialist econometric and mathematical techniques. It provides a platform for economics students with a particular interest in finance and will also be of interest to applicants who are already practicing economists or have work experience in the financial sector.

Completion of the MSc in Financial Economics is an excellent foundation for progression onto a research degree. At the heart of the programme are core modules in financial theory, plus a choice of further options in Finance, Economics or Econometrics. Non assessed intensive computing training covering Thomson Reuters Datastream and other financial databases and software, is incorporated into relevant modules.

This programme forms part of the ESRC South West Doctoral Training Centre – a hub of world-class social sciences research.
