Overview

The Financial Economics course combines study of the principles of economics and accounting, the application of economic analysis to financial markets and to corporate finance and business decision-making. Specialist modules focus upon accountancy, financial markets, investment appraisal and corporate finance, and international monetary economics.

A degree in economics would provide you with the skills to assess these topics from both a theoretical & practical perspective. Additionally, your final-year dissertation in financial economics will permit you to explore an area of interest in greater depth.

While studying for your Economics degree at the University of Bradford, you may also be interested in studying for a year in one of the partner institutions. This would be between the second and third year of your course and therefore you would be registered for a 4-year degree.

The university uses a variety of teaching and learning activities in the economics modules. Topics are introduced in lectures, which often include interactive elements. These are supplemented by smaller, focused seminar classes in which you may undertake a variety of activities including exercises, discussions and presentations, economics games or simulations, or computer lab work.
