Summary

This course will equip you with the skills and specialist knowledge required to test the theories, practices and conventional wisdom pertaining to the function of financial institutions, instruments, and markets in the economic process. You will be encouraged to critically evaluate the contemporary role of the financial system within domestic economies and the globalised financial environment. By mastering these subjects, you will have a truly expert understanding of the force that shapes our world today.

Teaching in the School of Management and Business is underpinned by research. Our academic staff publish their work in leading academic journals and regularly act as consultants to a range of organizations. We have significant strengths in areas such as entrepreneurship, human resource management, international business and operations and supply chain management. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) assessment the university was placed in the top 50 institutions for research power and intensity. It submitted 77% of eligible staff and 95% of the university's research was of an internationally recognised standard.

You will study topics including international finance, development, regulation, financial systems and the economic process through particular models and equations found in the core and optional study modules. For instance, in the module Research Methods in Finance, you will employ econometrics to analyse your subject matter. This will also prepare you for your final dissertation, in which you will demonstrate your enhanced skills in critical thinking and creativity, analysis, synthesis and critical appraisal.

You will study within the energetic School of Management and Business where robust debate is encouraged. Lectures and seminars will require you to develop your own ideas and to express, justify and defend them against the competing claims of your peers. You are, however, expected to take responsibility for your learning through independent reading and further study. This course runs full time for one academic year.
