MSc in Money and Banking


Course Description

Our MSc Economics programmes are intended to deepen your knowledge and understanding of economics as an academic discipline. Each programme draws upon the internationally-rated research undertaken within the department and the experience of our academics in developing economic policy at organisations such as such as the Bank of England, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the United Nations.

A central objective of all of the programmes is to provide you with insight into the latest thinking in economics. You will attend a series of research seminars, during which you can discuss and present current research papers. You can also participate in the departmental seminars, which attract external academics and provide you with the opportunity to gain insight into current research in economics and econometrics.

If you wish to pursue a career in finance and economics in the international banking sector, our MSc Money and Banking is an ideal programme. Delivered by the Department of Economics and the Xfi Centre for Finance and Investment, the programme draws upon the School’s long-standing reputation for delivering top quality graduates in finance and economics.

The programme provides a focus on the application of advanced economics and finance theory to commercial money markets and banking.
