This programme will provide you with the capability to apply modern macroeconomic, microeconomic and econometric methods in order to assess and shape organisational, government and financial policy.
Taught by academic experts in economics and finance, you will learn how to apply modern macroeconomic, microeconomic and econometric methods in order to assess and shape organisational, government and financial policy. You will study economic theory and policy, the actions of governments, firms, households and intermediaries in national and global money, bond and foreign exchange markets.
You will examine both the microeconomic impacts for firms and the macroeconomic implications for the global economy, and will develop advanced theoretical and quantitative skills – highly sought after by employers in financial services and government – as well as transferable skills that will be of value in a range of other business and policy sectors.
In addition, there is the opportunity to sharpen your practical skills by completing a research project that allows you to apply your knowledge of economics and finance.
