The core of the Quantitative Financial Economics course offered by the University of East Anglia consists of compulsory modules including Economic Concepts and Financial Econometrics. Alongside this you’ll study international finance and topics such as theories of exchange rate determination. You’ll also explore how financial markets work, with a technical module involving the study of financial models that can explain equilibrium asset prices and the term structure of interest rates.
You’ll discover the area of risk management and trading, with a module that includes an introduction to techniques designed to measure market and credit risk. You’ll also gain an insight into how trader behaviour contributes to bubbles and crashes.
Towards the end of your 12 months with us, you’ll write a dissertation on an area that most interests you in this field, which will be supervised by a member of the School of Economics.
We also offer additional support to help you get the most from your Master’s. This includes an optional, intensive pre-sessional course in the fortnight before your programme begins in September. This courseincorporates an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you’ll use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
Upon completing this MSc you can pursue a variety of careers in a wide range of financial professions, including the roles of financial or market analyst.
Past graduates from the School of Economics have gone on to work for HM Treasury, the Home Office, Bank of England, Aviva, Barclays, M+A Partners, BDO, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, Goldman Sachs, Grant Thornton, HSBC, JP Morgan, KPMG, Lloyds, PwC and Santander amongst others.
