MSc Economics of International Finance and Trade is designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of international finance and trade with an emphasis on the global flows of goods, services and finance from an investor and corporate perspective. Students will also develop specific skills highly relevant in the workplace as this is part of the School’s Applied Training Programme. The course provides a firm grasp of some of the methods, models and techniques currently used by firms and in international finance.
Students take compulsory modules in economics, financial econometrics, international trade and international finance. As part of the course, you also have the opportunity to pursue research on a topic of interest to you. Assessment will be carried out through combinations of coursework and exams. You will also write a dissertation on a topic of your choice, supervised individually by an academic from the School.
Teaching is provided by members of academic staff, often in a relatively informal learning environment, and programmes incorporate lectures, seminars, and practical work, including computer lab sessions. Teaching specifically in UEA’s School of Economics is informed by cutting edge research and practice; members of academic staff advise the European Commission, the Office of Fair Trading and other institutions, and their day-to-day experience in the running of competition policy gives a practical angle to the academic rigour of their teaching.
This course lays the foundations for a career in a range of financial professions, including international finance and risk management.
