Our MSc Economics and Investment Banking degree is designed to provide you with a robust understanding of financial economics, financial market behaviour and financial market participants such as investment banks. You will study a range of ideas relating to economics, finance and investments, which alongside the development of relevant skills and methods, enable you to better analyse and understand economic and financial issues.
The emphasis is on understanding the factors influencing consumption and production choices, including those made daily by those working in the financial sector, which is vitally important with today’s highly financialised and globally interdependent economies.
As an Economics student, you’ll have access to our unique Trading Room facility. With 12 double-screen workstations, the room gives you a simulated experience of working in the fast-moving world of shares and trading. You can access sophisticated analysis tools and data on worldwide financial markets.
Finally, in your third semester, you’ll choose an experiential project. With the opportunity to use your skills in a real-world setting, you can choose from completing a consultancy experience project, an internship experience project, a business research project or a global experience project.
