Course content

The Global Financial Crisis has highlighted the strong links that exist between Economics and Finance, and the undoubted international nature of both.

Understanding the interaction between the disciplines of Economics and Finance is now critical to understanding the world we live in and training in these subjects is essential for those hoping to work in the public or private sector as economists, analysts or consultants.

The aim of our MSc in Economics and Finance is to produce highly skilled professionals who can analyse, understand, and - most importantly - explain the complex economic and financial issues that arise in a globalised world.

The Masters in Economics and Finance is an innovative taught programme with a problem-solving focus, a strong emphasis on students developing and applying their skills to real-world situations, with expert guest speakers, and with teaching staff drawn from two world-class departments - Accounting & Finance, and Economics – that have high ratings for teaching, research and knowledge exchange.
