Summary

About This Course

Pave the way for a career in finance and acquire key skills in economics that are applicable to a wide range of financial careers – including those in the banking and capital market sectors.

On this course you'll gain a strong foundation in economics while exploring the role of money, central banking and monetary policy, as well as gaining insights into the global financial system and challenges it faces.

In core modules you'll cover essential economic concepts and econometrics as well as specialist topics such as Money and Banking. You'll also have the opportunity to undertake one of our optional modules – including Multinational Firms or Risk Management, among others. You will finish your course by writing a dissertation, which will be supervised by a member of the School of Economics.

Overview

Our MSc of Money Banking and Capital Markets is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background, wishing to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It’s also suitable if you’re an economics graduate looking to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training.

You'll take the compulsory modules Economic Concepts, Banking Econometrics, Money and Banking, and International Finance. You'll also be able to choose an optional module depending on your own interests. One of these options is Risk Management and Trading, which introduces techniques designed to measure market and credit risk, as well as providing you with insights into how trader behaviour contributes to bubbles and crashes.

Towards the end of your 12 months with us, you'll write a dissertation on an area of the discipline that supports your own interests and future goals. Throughout the dissertation process, you'll have support and supervision from a member of the School of Economics.

We also offer additional support to help you get the most from your Master’s. This includes an optional, intensive pre-sessional course in the fortnight before your programme begins in September. This course includes an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you'll use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
