This is for you if you want to know more about applying mathematics and statistics to economics and finance. Financial Economics deals with the fascinating world of pricing, interest rates and shares and how rational (or even irrational!) decisions affect them. You will explore the global role of these financial systems in modern economics and learn to analyse the impact of economic events on financial markets. You will become a proficient user of financial software and complex data sources which will enable you to better understand the impact and reach of economic decisions.
In your first year, you will be introduced to the core areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics and the economic application of advanced mathematical and statistical techniques to the solution of economic problems. First year modules are common to all Economics-related BSc degrees. There is flexibility to switch between these degrees during your first year. In Year 2, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of microeconomics and macroeconomics. Modules in econometrics will further your understanding of applications of mathematics and statistics to economics. You will have specialist modules in principles of banking and principles of finance which will further develop subject-specific skills in these areas. In your final year you will have the opportunity to choose option modules, giving you the opportunity to shape your degree according to your interests. The core modules will cover the major areas of international finance, financial derivatives, corporate finance and investment management. Your statistical knowledge will be enhanced through an advanced module in econometrics and a computer-based empirical project is undertaken to provide skills in econometric research.
