Master of Financial Economics


Throughout the programme, teaching stresses the links between theories in financial economics and key finance activities. Topics are chosen in the economics courses for their relevance to finance. The MFE has been designed in close consultation with a panel of advisers from leading financial institutions. This panel has helped ensure that the choice and content of courses match the needs of employers. The panel continues to play an important role on the Master of Financial Economics, providing up-to-date practitioner advice on course content, supplying adjunct faculty and representing major recruiters.

The Master Financial Economics course offers:

  • pre-course training to become familiar with key concepts and techniques
  • three days of training in financial markets and institutions
  • four core courses in asset pricing, economics, corporate finance and financial econometric
  • five elective courses chosen from a wide range to allow the development of individual skills and specializations

The assessment regime is a flexible combination of examinations, assignments and individual projects.
