Course summary

Course overview

The MSc programme in Money, Banking and Central Banking focuses on the changes in the banking and financial markets during and since the Global Financial Crisis, as well as the changes made by major central banks in the running of their monetary policies since then.

Banks and central banks play a pivotal role in the sound functioning of modern monetary economies. The 2008-09 Global Financial Crisis was a powerful reminder of how important it is to understand their functioning and operations, and the relationship between the quantity of money and the overall economy.

Unlike any other programme in the UK, ours emphasises the importance of high quality monetary and banking analysis, allowing our students to assess which policies are compatible with stable economic growth and long term financial stability.

Our students will leave with expert knowledge of monetary economics, monetary policy, risk assessment and how financial institutions operate. They will be equipped with the specialised knowledge and skills required for a career in central banking, as well as monetary analysis suitable to pursue a career in consultancy businesses, research departments and specialised media.

Assessment methods

The assessment of individual modules within each course varies according to the subject. Assessment is usually by examination, assessed coursework, or a combination of the two. At the end of the programme students will submit a master’s dissertation with comprehensive research work on one of the topics addressed in the programme.

Graduate employment

Our graduates have gone on to further study at most of the world’s leading universities, including Harvard, London (UCL and LSE and Imperial College), Oxford and Cambridge and secured jobs in senior positions around the world. Students will be able to benefit from career opportunities in various financial institutions, consultancy businesses and research institutes, including the Institute of International Monetary Research that will be offering several internships to our graduates.
