Financial Economics is a fascinating area, having a history marked by outstanding achievements. A remarkable feature of this discipline is that its theoretical highlights (such as the Black-Scholes formula) turned out to be extremely important in practice. Fundamental ideas and tools of Financial Economics that were developed at the interface between Mathematical Economics and Finance created new markets essentially based on concepts suggested by academics.
A central goal of the Financial Economics course from The University of Manchester is to demonstrate the use of these ideas and tools in contexts where they are indispensable and widely exploited. The course will expose students to quantitative techniques and theory that will be useful to anyone in the financial industry - a portfolio manager, risk management consultant, or financial analyst.
