Course summary

Why Economics with Financial Services? In today’s globalised world, the need to understand economic principles and how they affect business is more important than ever before. We’ll give you the chance to gain a valuable grounding in economics with an additional focus on financial services to help make you attractive to employers in your chosen field. This could lead to an exciting career in all manner of industries, in the private or public sector. Economics looks at how people and organisations utilise the resources they have to meet their needs. You can look at economics at a national level, or from the perspective of a household or even a single person. Businesses are always looking for people who understand the theory behind the practice. Social problems like poverty and inequality, high unemployment and rising pollution can all be tackled through a knowledge of economics. On the course you’ll look at macroeconomics, which gives you the chance to explore how high-level factors such as income, inflation and consumption affect each other, and also microeconomics which looks at how individual businesses and even households behave and how to develop models to analyse them. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of both retail and investment banking, how the bond and stock markets work, and the regulatory practices that have an impact on the financial system. Policy practice is also explored to keep pace with fast moving and ever-changing business environments. How will you learn? How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions. * During your study you'll study macroeconomics, which focuses on the importance of aggregate investment,consumption and what fuels economic growth. * You'll also have the chance to explore microeconomic theories and applications, which include sector specific practices such as competition, regulation and government intervention. * You'll have the opportunity to develop a deep knowledge of financial services and the economic and institutional factors that underpin this sector. In particular, you'll study financial and legal aspects of business, contemporary issues in banking and capital markets, international finance and international trade. * Throughout the course you'll have the opportunity to study mathematics and statistics for social sciences, and econometrics. The quantitative modules will equip you with the tools used by professional economists to evaluate the impact of economic policies and analyse contemporary economic and financial phenomena. * During your studies you'll have the opportunity to learn how to use Industry standard databases, such as Datastream, alongside sector leading software packages such as Stata, R and Eviews. We don’t expect you to be fully versed in business or economics before your course begins, as we aim to build up your understanding from first principles. We’ll also be looking at how mathematic tools can be used to analyse economic decisions. So any mathematics is very much applied rather than pure. What subjects will you cover? You’ll explore subjects such as an Introduction to Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, Financial Services and Financial Fluency, Monetary and Financial Framework, Climate Economics and Finance and Global Financial Management.
