University of Essex
The emphasis of this course is on the ways that economic reasoning can inform and illuminate the financial decision-making of investors and the financial choices made by firms. Students on this course therefore gain key skills in the analysis of complex financial data. The compulsory modules in economics of financial markets and topics in financial economics, give students the chance to gain a comprehensive understanding of financial economics. In particular, economics of financial markets explores the notions of risk and return in equity markets, both in the context of asset pricing and in the management of equity portfolios. In addition to key employability skills like numeracy and ICT knowledge, information and communication, students also acquire knowledge of how financial markets work and how to analyse them.
Research councils and some University of Essex studentships available.
