University of Essex
Financial Economics and Econometrics
This course includes theoretical and applied aspects of econometrics to complement subjects in financial markets and corporate finance; in the estimation and inference in econometrics module, students gain an understanding of the theoretical foundations of econometrics, which enables them to justify, or criticise where appropriate, the use of particular econometric methods; they learn how these methods are applied to the analysis of financial market data in another core module, empirical methods of economics and finance; they also see the economic rationale for different approaches in modules like economics of financial markets and topics in financial economics; these seek to equip students with the right combination of skills for rigorous analysis to underpin high-level policy advice or decision making in the fast moving financial sector.
Research councils and some University of Essex studentships available.
