Economics and Banking - Manchester Metropolitan University

This programme draws together the strengths of our accounting, banking, finance and economics expertise of the Business School, and enables you to gain an understanding of how banks and other financial institutions are placed in the economy, both in the UK and internationally. You will benefit from a rigorous grounding in economic theory and gain subject specific knowledge of the behaviour and practice of banks. Many of the units on this course are shared with the specialist programmes of BA (Hons) Economics and BA (Hons) Banking and Finance. This course has a common first year with BA (Hons) Economics and Finance meaning you have the flexibility to transfer between courses at the end of your first year. We also offer four year routes where you have the opportunity to spend your third year on industrial placement or studying abroad, after which you will return to study for your final year. Graduates from this course will be ultimately placed to go into careers within the banking and financial services industries, but will have gained economical knowledge to pursue careers in financial forecasting, economic and financial analysis. Large international banks, private wealth and asset management firms, as well as hedge fund management may all be suitable careers for graduates from this course, as would setting up your own independent consultancy or management practice.
