Course content

This programme is designed for economics graduates who would like to develop an understanding of the nature of the differing institutional settings of financial systems in various developed and developing countries.

  • You will develop tools to evaluate the problem of moral hazard in relation to international rescue operations and recognise factors that may lead to the emergence of banking and currency crises and other sources of serious economic instability.
  • You will be taught by leaders in the field, many of whom have worked with international and government organisations including the IMF, World Bank, UN, Commonwealth Secretariat, central banks and government organisations in developing countries.
  • The University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School celebrates the legacy of Adam Smith by developing enlightened, enterprising and engaged graduates and internationally-recognised research with real social impact.
