Course info

Summary

The emphasis of our MSc Financial Economics is on the ways that economic reasoning can inform and illuminate the financial decision-making of investors and the financial choices made by firms.

You gain a broad and comprehensive understanding of financial economics. In particular, you explore topics including:

  • Notions of risk and return in equity markets, both in the context of asset pricing and in the management of equity portfolios
  • Optimisation theory
  • How economic arguments work
  • The role of equilibrium

We are top 5 in the UK for research, with over 90% rated as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”. Much of this world-class research is related to policy, and we have particular strengths in the areas of:

  • Game theory and strategic interactions
  • Theoretical and applied econometrics
  • Labour economics

The quality of our work is reflected in our stream of publications in high-profile academic journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, and Review of Economic Studies.
