This Economics and Financial Economics programme at the University of Nottingham is influenced by the work of academics at the Centre for Finance, Credit and Macroeconomics (CFCM), which focuses on issues arising from the operation of financial markets, household debt and corporate finance. It also investigates the transmission mechanisms of monetary policy through credit channels, particularly when credit is constrained.

At the end of the course, you will be able to read and understand current and classic research papers in the field of financial economics, and will have received one-to-one guidance to enable you to complete your first finance research project.
