Course content

This course is ideal for you if you already have a strong grounding in economics, are highly numerate, and want to learn to apply your knowledge to finance. You will be considering jobs in the City or in the capital markets of your own country, in areas such as asset management, corporate finance, trading, financial regulation, and economic and financial consulting and central banking.

WBS benefits from excellent links to key financial institutions and employers and this course has benefited from recommendations following consultation with the Bank of England, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, and many of our alumni.

Course details

Six compulsory modules cover key material in finance, economics and econometrics while two optional modules allow you to focus on your preferences. Every year we offer optional modules, available through various study routes, delivered here at WBS. Please note that availability and delivery modes may vary.

Modules are taught by staff from both WBS and the Department of Economics at Warwick through a combination of lectures, classes and computer lab sessions.

Assessment is a mix of exams and coursework with your dissertation bringing all your learning together at the end.

Lectures & classes

Lectures introduce key theories, concepts and economic models. In classes you will solve financial problems and numerical exercises, analyse case studies and make presentations of research published in academic journals.

Lab work

Lab work will give you hands-on experience of using software to perform finance-related calculations and conduct realistic simulations. Econometric methods are also taught in the lab, so you will learn to apply econometric software to empirical research and financial market estimations.

Your dissertation

An 8,000 word dissertation gives you the opportunity to test and apply techniques and theories you have been learning and to complete an original piece of research. You will be supervised and supported by one of our academic staff or Teaching Associates and will usually submit your dissertation in early September.
