Description

The MSc Financial History provides students with a historical and interdisciplinary perspective on the main challenges facing the global monetary and financial system and capital markets. In the last decade, the field of financial history has experienced considerable growth globally. Fifteen years of financial turmoil have led to a revival of questions and debates about money and finance and stakeholders as well as have realised how a deeper knowledge of financial history can help to better inform and guide the current policy debate.

The programme will allow students from various academic backgrounds (history, finance, economics or any related discipline) to acquire a deep understanding of the functioning of capital markets and of the conduct of monetary affairs through a historical approach. It will train you, through the study of financial history, to think critically and deeply about monetary and financial problems.
