Course Summary

Overview

The connections between finance and development are crucial to the growth prospects of developing and emerging economies. They are also the focus of some of the most interesting intellectual developments of recent decades.

Our new MSc International Finance and Economic Development provides students with a solid understanding of the key economic and financial issues involved in economic development, including:

  • ‘macro’ issues in economic development such as rural development and urbanisation, industrialisation, the informal sector, the international context of development and policies for trade and growth, and the role of foreign aid;
  • 'micro' issues in development such as credit markets, insurance, health care, gender issues and education;
  • finance and development, with particular reference to emerging economies;
  • the international monetary and financial system and how this impinges on developing and emerging economies.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
