Course summary

Become an expert in the economics of quantitative financial economics with an emphasis on financial markets and asset pricing models. Develop a range of transferable skills that will help prepare you for a career in a wide range of financial professions.

Our MSc in Quantitative Financial Economics gives you general training in economics, while specialising in the area of quantitative finance. It’ll also give you a firm grasp of some of the methods, models and techniques used by firms in the financial services sector and beyond.

You do not need to have previously studied economics before taking this course - yet you’ll graduate ready to make your mark in finance, with potential roles including financial or market analyst.

OVERVIEW

MSc Quantitative Financial Economics is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background, yet wish to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It’s also suitable if you’re an economics graduate and wish to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training.

The core of your course consists of compulsory modules including Economic Concepts and Financial Econometrics. Alongside this you’ll study international finance and topics such as theories of exchange rate determination. You’ll also explore how financial markets work, with a technical module involving the study of financial models that can explain equilibrium asset prices and the term structure of interest rates.
