Course summary

Overview

The course will give you a strong grounding in mathematical and statistical theory for finance. You will also learn about the theoretical study of economics (micro and macro) and financial accounting in the context of contemporary events, and will be encouraged to progress your practical skills in the field.

In your second and third year you will have the opportunity to tailor your learning to your own area of interest by choosing from optional modules alongside the compulsory core modules.

Our Trading Room will give you a simulated experience on the same information platform used by leading decision-makers in finance, business and government. This real-world insight into markets and trading will sharpen your economic skills and can boost employability prospects. Students have access to both Bloomberg and Refinitiv/Eikon self-study certifications and their online training materials. These are available to students via campus and online.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (presentations, essays and reports) and usually an exam or test, which is typically weighted as follows in your first year:

  • Exam: 60%
  • Coursework: 40%

These assessment weightings are indicative only. The exact weighting may vary depending on option modules chosen by students and teaching methods deployed by the academic member of staff each year. Indicative assessment weighting and assessment type per module are shown as part of the module information. Again these are based on the current academic session.

Graduate careers

Our Economics and Finance course is an ideal opportunity to prepare for a career in business, finance and the civil service.

Since the global financial crisis of 2007/08, economics has been at the centre stage of policy analysis, with sound economic skills and competencies being sought-after in many areas.

Our graduates have gone on to work for globally renowned organisations such as Red Bull, KPMG, PepsiCo, Grant Thornton, and Barclays in a variety of roles including commercial finance analyst, auditor, cost technician, tax processor and financial criminal analyst.
