Masters degrees in Financial Economics focus on investments, banking, commercial transactions and other activities associated with the movement or use of money. Courses often cross over into other branches of Economics and Econometrics, but focus on financial processes and institutions.
Most programmes in this area award taught MSc degrees. Shorter PGCert or PGDip options may also be available.
This specialism is best suited to postgraduates with a specific interest in banking, investment or financial trading. As well as a grounding in more advanced economic theory, you’ll learn about the effective analysis of financial processes and the management of financial institutions.
As such, these Masters degrees are ideal for students with a first degree in Economics (or a related discipline) seeking postgraduate courses with a more professional focus.
Obvious careers with a Financial Economics Masters include work for high street or investment banks, managed funds, or similar organisations. Governments and policy makers also employ economists to help analyse and predict financial trends.
Alternatively, your Masters will provide a platform for further research at PhD level and beyond.
