Economics and Finance

This programme prepares students for work as a professional economist in the financial and banking sectors, public sector and international organisations by providing an education in advanced economic and finance theory and econometric methods. It includes compulsory modules in financial econometrics, financial markets and instruments, and the financial economics of asset pricing, reflecting the School's research expertise in finance. Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is aimed at motivating students to achieve their full potential. All MSc students take a module in Research Methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for MSc-level research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our Master's programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics.
