Why choose this course

Economics and finance are the driving forces behind the decisions that shape the world of business. Our MSc in Business Economics and Finance is taught by one of the UK's leading economics schools. It combines comprehensive coverage of core economic principles with a focus on their application in the context of business and corporate finance.

What you will study

Our MSc in Business Economics and Finance offers comprehensive study in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics combined with a specialisation in topics related to business and finance.

Through this course you will develop specialist knowledge in two important areas. Firstly, the Economics of the Firm and Human Resource Economics modules examine the importance of business issues in the study of economics, and modern developments in personnel economics. The second area of specialism focuses on a combination of the theory of finance and financial econometrics. The former will give you a thorough knowledge of modern finance theory, while the latter is directed towards the principal techniques applied to financial data.
