Overview

MSc Money and Banking is an excellent opportunity for students who wish to pursue a career requiring a sophisticated understanding of the macro-economy and state-of-the-art analytical skills, such as in global industry, banking and finance, or government organisations.

Programme Overview

The world of business is becoming ever more connected. Firms are looking for people who are able to leverage the interconnected nature of banking, finance, and the macroeconomy to help them manage risk and uncertainty. MSc Money and Banking provides students with the crucial knowledge to understand current debates in monetary, fiscal, and macroprudential policymaking. With a strong emphasis on technical skills, the programme teaches students how to model economic issues, conduct rigorous empirical analyses, and discuss their work with diverse audiences to generate meaningful insight.

The modules in this programme cover a wide range of fields within macroeconomics and finance, allowing students to study many of the current issues facing the world economy. These include Brexit and rising trade barriers, regulations of finance and banking, and the economics of cryptocurrency.

Students will learn the most up-to-date statistical techniques used in industry to build macro-financial forecasts, which are in high demand among consulting firms, investment banks, research institutes, and government agencies.

An important feature of our programme is that the modules are taught by world-class researchers who publish in leading academic journals on the very topics they teach. Many of our faculty maintain close relationships with businesses, governments, and non-profit organisations, connecting their research to real-world impact.
