Course summary

Overview

The Economics & Finance MSc from King’s Business School provides rigorous coverage of both the theory and practice of economics and finance, driven by research, theory development, practical application and critical analysis. Our course is designed to equip you with the economic and financial knowledge and skills you need to build a strong career in the business and finance sectors. You’ll learn about micro and macroeconomics, financial markets & services and the relationship between finance and econometrics. But you won’t just learn the key quantitative skills you need for success. Our courses are underpinned by the underlying philosophies and methodologies of a social science approach to economics and finance. Numbers are important, but understanding how those numbers affect the wider world of finance and business is essential in the modern world.

Course detail

The programme provides you with rigorous coverage of both the theory and practice of economics and finance and a high quality, research-based education of practical relevance in economics and finance that is driven by a combination of research, theory development, critical analysis, and practical application. The programme is designed to cover contemporary empirical evidence in applied economics, with a focus on labour markets and the health and education sectors and/or international economics as well as internal workings of corporations, financial institutions and financial services firms and their inter-relationships. Our MSc in Economics and Finance is designed to produce professionals with skills highly sought after by economics consultancies, research institutions, banks and financial sector firms. Although the programme is economics and finance focused, given the wide-ranging applications of data analysis, the students will gain skills that are easily transferrable to a wide range of other industries, including e-commerce, hospitality, retail, pharmaceutical and media.
