On our International Finance and Economics MSc, you will learn:
  • how to apply economic theory to the latest technological challenges
  • to understand the impact of finance and financial markets on the wider global economy
  • with an emphasis on development and application rather than formulae.
You’ll study financial and monetary economics as well as technical aspects, such as corporate finance and financial econometrics.
And without needing extensive prior knowledge, you’ll gain the technical and analytical skills for a career in international finance. This will give you an edge in your financial career – whether in government, consultancy, banking or with an NGO.
