Course summary

This MA will enable you to have a sound understanding of the functions, institutions and instruments of finance, and to know how and why financial systems differ. Taking a pluralist theoretical approach, the MA provides an in-depth study of how finance affects the broader economy, and how the behaviour of firms, households and governments are adapting as the financial sector evolves through processes of innovation and growth. Drawing always on empirical data - from flow of funds at the macro level down to balance sheet analysis at the micro level of the firm - you will develop the key analytical skills necessary for carrying out research in contemporary issues in financial economics.

Assessment: Graded problem sets, practical coursework, essays, examinations, thematic case studies, policy briefs, and dissertation. Whilst studying this Financial Economics MA, you'll be taught a range of skills to enhance your employability. All students completing the programme will emerge with a sound understanding of the underlying analytical principles and research techniques used in financial economics, as well as the ability to write in a clear and coherent manner about the issues involved. The dissertation evidences the ability to produce an extended piece of research in this field, integrating and demonstrating mastery of this range of skills.
