About the course

Course overview

This subject is particularly relevant given all the changes introduced in banking and financial markets during the last global financial crisis as well as the changes made by major central banks in the running of their monetary policies since then.

The programme pays particular attention to the changes introduced by major central banks since March 2020, with the outbreak of Covid-19 crisis, as well as to the launch of new digital currencies by central banks and the private sector. This all emphasises again the importance of high quality monetary and banking analysis so we can assess those policies compatible with stable economic growth and financial stability over the long term.
