Business Economics and Finance

This programme will give you a thorough education in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics combined with an understanding of two particular specialty areas. Firstly, modules in Economics of the Firm and Human Resource Economics examine the importance of business issues in the study of economics, and modern developments in personnel economics. The second area of specialisation focuses on a combination of the theory of finance and financial econometrics. The former will give you a thorough grounding in modern finance theory, while the latter is directed towards the principal econometric techniques that are applied to financial data.
