Course content

Based in one of the top economics schools in the UK, this programme combines comprehensive coverage of core economic principles with a focus on their application in the context of business and corporate finance.

Our MSc Business Economics and Finance programme offers comprehensive study in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics combined with a specialisation in topics related to business and finance.

Through this programme you will develop specialist knowledge in two key areas. Firstly, the Economics of the Firm and Human Research Economics modules examine the importance of business issues in the study of economics, and modern developments in personnel economics. The second area of specialisation focuses on a combination of the theory of finance and financial econometrics. The former will give you a thorough grounding in modern finance theory, while the latter is directed towards the principal econometric techniques that are applied to financial data.
