About

The Finance (Major - Economic Policy) programme at the University of London deepens your understanding of banks and financial markets, and how they relate to economic performance. It will help you to advance your career in finance and policy.

Overview

Because finance is so wide ranging, the degree allows you to choose between four majors:

  • Economic Policy
  • Banking
  • Financial Sector Management
  • Quantitative Finance

The four pathways of the MSc Finance allow you to select a study path best suited to your objectives and skills.

The Finance (Major - Economic Policy) programme at the University of London is designed for postgraduates who wish to enter the banking sector and professionals who seek greater knowledge of financial management for competitive advantages. Discover more about core banking activities, retirement and financial planning, commercial credit and factoring, and liquidity and risk management.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of this programme you will be well prepared for senior positions in governments, central banks, other public organisations, international institutions and consultancy. You will also acquire the requisite skills for roles in higher education and research institutions.

"The curriculum helped me understand the importance of economic and government policies in supporting sustainable economic growth and the resulting welfare of a society. Almost every day, I find that I apply some element from the programme to decisions and topics arising in my job."
