Study type Taught


This course provides you with the core skills and techniques needed to understand the economics of financial markets. The course is taught by economists with substantial experience working with central banks, regulators and other financial institutions.

MSc Financial Economics is designed for those intending to prepare for a career in the financial sector, including those with an interest in central banks or regulatory authorities which oversee financial markets and institutions. It provides relevant preparation for work as an economist, supervisor or regulator in commercial and investment banks, credit rating agencies, pension companies and insurers, as well as in the public sector.

The course includes an introduction to the fundamentals of financial economics, which means that this degree is suitable for those who have not specialised in this area of economics before. You will also be given modules in consumer and firm behaviour, and the macroeconomic context for policymaking. You will also take a “hands-on” data analysis module with applications relevant to financial economics.
