This is an applied economics degree geared towards students who wish to pursue careers in financial institutions and markets. However, it does not preclude students from other careers in economics or continuing to a research degree.
The programme emphasises the development of the skills required by economists in modern financial institutions. It includes therefore core courses in economics, finance, financial institutions and markets and quantitative techniques. The optional modules are designed to allow the student to develop their own areas of interest.
Students are required to complete 8 taught modules over two semesters: in each semester students are required to take 4 modules which are examined at the end of each semester. In addition students are required to complete a dissertation. The award of an MSc Money, Banking and Finance requires students to pass taught modules and the dissertation.
