Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Business Management (Financial Economics) (Top Up) ERC Institute



Course info


Internationalization of economic life and the widening income inequality between rich and poor countries are key features of the 21st century. Although modern globalization led to unprecedented levels of growth and prosperity, ensuring sustainability of this growth and enhancing the participation of developing countries have emerged as the new challenges for economists and policy makers.

International trade has become more dynamic in its scope, direction, and patterns. Many economies have undergone huge structural readjustments in line with the changing geography of global production and trade. Industrial policy has shifted from one of direct intervention in the form of subsidies and protecting industries, to one of focusing upon external business environment and the conditions that influence competitiveness on the supply side.

The International financial market has emerged as the most integrated sector of the global economy. It became the key source of development funding by channeling in the emerging markets some $1300 billion in the 1990s compared to a meager $170 billion in the 1980s. This is expected to expand as more developing countries grow and provide new investment opportunities. On the other hand, recent currency turmoil and financial crisis of Mexico, SE Asia, and Argentina etc exposed the structural instabilities inherent the global market and the vulnerability of national governments international businesses

Given these facts, it is important that students graduate with proper understanding of the models, policies and institutions that govern the behavior of businesses and governments operating in a modern international economy. This course offers an educational experience that combines theory and applications of the fundamentals of economic development, international trade, and international financial markets and institutions.
