Overview

The Finance (Economic Policy) programme from SOAS University of London will increase your understanding of the principles, applications, and context underlying economic policy, focusing on the financial aspects of policy making.

In addition, students who take the MSc in Finance will acquire a sound understanding of theories in finance and of the workings of financial markets, for a career in finance or for further research at the PhD level.

Students will also become acquainted with the main issues and methods in Macroeconomic Policy, Microeconomic Policy, International Finance, and Banking and Capital Markets. The programme will present Finance and Economic Policy as scientific disciplines with a rigorous methodology, but at the same time will describe the way financial markets and institutions actually work in a variety of contexts.

Our teaching offers you exceptional insights into financial institutions and markets in London and other major cities in the world. In addition, we offer specialist knowledge of financial and management systems in the emerging markets of Africa, Asia and the Middle East – something that will set you apart from graduates of other universities that normally focus on the analysis of Europe and the Americas.

You will develop an excellent understanding of key issues shaping international business strategy in a global financial environment.
