Course Summary

This course explores current theories, while providing you with research training and the core skills and techniques needed for analytical work on financial markets. This course is influenced by the work of academics at the Centre for Finance, Credit and Macroeconomics (CFCM), which focuses on issues arising from the operation of financial markets, household debt and corporate finance. It also investigates the transmission mechanisms of monetary policy through credit channels, particularly when credit is constrained. Building on the core Economic Theory module, this course provides specialist modules on financial economics and financial econometrics. There is also the opportunity to select modules in decision-making under Risk and Uncertainty, Options and Futures Markets, and Behavioural Finance. You will be trained in the use of analytic and quantitative methods in examining economic issues, and will be provided with research training at the level required to progress to a PhD. At the end of the course, you will be able to read and understand current and classic research papers in the field of financial economics, and will have received one-to-one guidance to enable you to complete your first finance research project.
