MSc Finance & Economics

Discover how to apply your economics knowledge to finance with our MSc Finance & Economics

Explore the most advanced tools in finance and use your economics background as a springboard to increase your career options. Benefit from the combined approach of Warwick Business School and the Department of Economics, two of the University of Warwick’s top departments.  

This course is ideal for you if you already have a strong grounding in economics, are highly numerate, and want to learn to apply your knowledge to finance. You will be considering jobs in the City or in the capital markets of your own country, in areas such as asset management, corporate finance, trading, financial regulation, and economic and financial consulting and central banking.  

As the anticipation of jobs being challenged by Artificial Intelligence becomes a reality, we aim to share the skills and depth of understanding needed to design, develop, and supervise these new forms of financial intelligence. 

In line with the CFA curriculum we have launched a new module on Ethics, Financial Regulation and Corporate Governance, offering you the opportunity to study with a European business school partner. 

WBS and the Department of Economics benefit from excellent links to key financial institutions and employers, and this course has benefited from industry recommendations.
