Financial Economics and Banking

This degree in financial economics and banking aims to explore the skills needed for a very successful management or leadership career. On successful completion you will have learnt a wide range of transferrable skills which will help you to succeed in a wide variety of disciplines, industries and locations.   **Practical** This is a very hands-on course, where you will have the opportunity to learn not only academic theory but also what happens in the workplace. On successful completion, you should be confident at preparing business reports and presentations, and be confident handling complex economic and financial data. You will have the opportunity to learn to model economic relations, interpret banking theories and economic policies, and analyse and predict business behaviour. This course will help you to develop a superb range of analytical, quantitative, communication and IT skills, and be able to apply them in real-life situations.   **Technology** You will be taught to use the industry-standard software you’ll encounter in the workplace when you graduate.

You’ll also use our mock trading floor, which mirrors an  investment bank and is equipped with Bloomberg terminals; Global investor simulation; S&P Capital IQ (for company data and analytical tools).   **London** You will study in one of the world’s leading cities for finance, which means you’ll be surrounded by world-famous institutions, huge investment and retail banks, venture-capital companies, hedge funds, fintech firms, analysts and consultants, and much more. You will have opportunities to visit and hear from a range of organisations and institutions, and even to apply to do an internship with one or more of them (subject to application and availability). Since this is London, you will also be surrounded by countless finance and economics-related conferences, expos and museums.   **Tutors** You will be taught by enthusiastic and helpful tutors who have experience of working in finance, economics and/or banking, and who hold a range of both academic and professional qualifications. If you need extra support with statistics, mathematics or Excel, they run additional workshops to help.
