Economics and Finance

Who we are

Who we are

We are a vibrant international community of over 30 economics and finance scholars that undertake teaching, research and external engagement activities across the broad spectrum of our subject disciplines. Our teaching is informed and guided by our research activity that spans from, for example, innovative empirical and theoretical work in the banking and financial services markets of Europe, through to economic analyses, informed by fieldwork, of poverty alleviation strategies, corruption and wildlife conservation in developing country contexts.

Our subject group delivers economics and finance based modules to students involved in undergraduate, postgraduate and research degree opportunities across the entire Business School. Our programmes provide rigorous academic challenges and a strong platform for proceeding to work either as a professional economist, or in many other jobs where economic intuition, skills and training are highly sought after, valued and can enhance labour market prospects. Our students benefit from a dynamic group of scholars that enjoy teaching, as well as state of the art resources and computing facilities. This includes a large Bloomberg suite of terminals that can provide a valuable research, teaching and certificated training resource for students of economics and finance at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

We use a variety of teaching methods from lectures, tutorials, student presentations, in class exercises and practical sessions in our Bloomberg Suite. Our approaches to learning, assessment and feedback are varied and constructive, to help you build the personal management and employability skills that are essential for fulfilling careers.
