Why this programme
The Finance and Economic Development programme of the University of Glasgow will provide you with a good understanding of:
- the role of money and financial intermediation in economic growth
- the rationale for financial repression and financial liberalisation
- structures and social functions of monetary and financial systems in both developing and developed countries
- operation of economic stabilisation and financial regulation
- the role of appropriate institutions for financial development and international financial integration
- financial and economic crisis and ways of promoting recovery and of preventing similar events in the future
- tools which are used to evaluate the problem of moral hazard in relation to international rescue operations
- how analytical frameworks can be used to evaluate strategies of growth and development
This programme provides the empirical tools, data, and STATA software training that will enable students to investigate economic development and to prepare an independent empirical analysis.
You will be taught by experts in the field, many of whom have worked with international and government organisations such as the IMF, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, central banks and government organisations in developing countries.
You will have access to all conferences and seminars hosted by the Glasgow Centre for International Development. This means you will be exposed to interdisciplinary research and approaches to development in the fields of medicine, veterinary medicine, environmental management, sustainability or education.
The Adam Smith Business School celebrates the legacy of Adam Smith by developing enlightened, enterprising and engaged graduates and internationally-recognised research with real social impact.
Take advantage of our individualised skills development programme, which will ensure you balance academic theory with crucial employability skills to help you maximise your potential and achieve your career goals.
This programme will prepare you for careers in economic development as a government official, in international agencies or in other organisations concerned with economic development. Our graduates have taken up roles as research economists and senior economists, for example. We have a dedicated careers and employability team who provide 1-2-1 support and advice, group workshops, employer events on campus and networking opportunities throughout the year to help you with your career prospects.
