Course summary

In an ever-more connected world, we need to understand trade, finance and strategy on an international level. The 2008 financial crisis showed us how regional events can have massive global consequences. Understanding financial decision-making, risk management and the behaviour of global financial markets has never been so important. You’ll develop an international perspective from the first semester, with a module on the world economy. You’ll cover macroeconomics and microeconomics, and learn to apply quantitative techniques. You’ll also study financial topics such as international finance and international trade. With a wide choice of modules in the final year, you can direct your studies to your interests or career goals, from behavioural finance to corporate strategy and the finance of emerging markets.
