International Finance and Banking
This course equips students with the skills and specialist knowledge required to test the theories, practices and conventional wisdom pertaining to banks, non-bank financial institutions, instruments and markets in the economic process. Students are encouraged to critically evaluate the contemporary role of the financial system within domestic economies and the globalised financial environment. By mastering these subjects, students have a truly expert understanding of the force that shapes our world today. Students study topics including international finance, banking, regulation and the economic process and the 6 core study modules provide the differing models, equations and perspectives required. For instance, in the module research methods in finance, students employ econometrics to analyse their subject matter. This also prepares students for their final dissertation in which they demonstrate their enhanced skills in critical thinking and creativity, analysis, synthesis and critical appraisal.
