Financial Economics program structure

Bachelor’s degrees in financial economics can be studied over three years, or four years if you participate in an additional industry placement. Placements are a fantastic way to sample different roles and build professional contacts.

As the world’s largest economy, the US is an in-demand study abroad location for financial economics students. US undergraduate degrees last at least four years, but you’ll only declare a major in financial economics at the end of your second year.

If you’re still hungry to learn more, postgraduate programs in financial economics are available. Master’s degrees usually require one year of full-time study, or two years if you study part-time. Research-based PhDs can take anywhere between three and seven years to finish.

Your timetable will likely consist of lectures, seminars, laboratory sessions, and tutorials. Assessment methods will vary according to the specific module, but exams, essays, in-class tests, presentations, and group projects are common.

Every university will offer a different selection of elective modules as part of their financial economics program. However, most will still introduce students to the following core topics:

  • Introduction to microeconomics
  • Introduction to macroeconomics
  • Introduction to econometrics
  • Data analysis
  • Mathematics for financial economics
  • Statistics for financial economics
  • Understanding global financial markets
  • Money and banking
