The MSc Economics and Finance programme combines a solid foundation in economic theory and applied econometrics with the study of finance. The study of financial microeconomics and macroeconomics will help you to understand complex issues related to financial decision-making while econometrics will provide the necessary tools to perform rigorous research in applied economics and finance. In addition, finance modules included in this programme cover a wide range of subjects related to portfolio theory, corporate finance, investment and strategy, and derivative instruments. International Business School Suzhou attracts self-motivated students who are interested in a programme related to economics and specialising in finance. Students considering applying for this programme should have some prior learning in quantitative methods, statistics or econometrics, especially those with a degree that is not in economics or finance. Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU masters degrees, earn a University of Liverpool degree that is recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
