What will I learn?

The MSc Economics and Finance is designed to prepare graduates to work as economists in the investment banking industry and other international or government organisations or in research related roles.

The MSc Economics and Finance is delivered jointly by the ICMA Centre and the Department of Economics. Students admitted to the programme will therefore benefit from rigorous training in both economics and finance and benefit from range of specialist modules offered by both departments.

The programme is structured with a strong emphasis on the combination of theory and practice. It gives students both breadth and depth of understanding of economics and finance in a systematic way, combining theoretical, methodological and practical issues. Participants learn how to apply and use models but also the theoretical foundations behind the models. They also study micro and macroeconomics and acquire solid understanding of financial theories, corporate finance and financial economics, which will equip them with strong practical and analytical skills for financial services, investment analysis and research.
