3 SECTION 2: OVERVIEW AND PROGRAMME AIMS 2.1 Rationale for/distinctiveness of the programme The allocation and management of financial resources and the interaction of (international) financial markets with the wider economy is fundamental to the economic well-being of a modern society. This has been forcefully demonstrated by the various financial crises in the last twenty to twenty-five years, ie since the onset of the (modern) globalisation era. Consequently, the demand for highly skilled experts in financial economics has increased rapidly in the modern economy. This demand exists in the public sector (central banks, international organisations) and in the private sector (commercial banks, insurance companies). This programme offers students from around the world the opportunity to acquire an in depth understanding of the role and workings of financial markets in today s economy and analyse how international financial markets link and interact with the wider economy. The programme is built on a theoretically and empirically rigorous analysis of market mechanisms and decisions and the application of this analysis to the financial sector. While this programme equips those who wish to become professional financial economists with the technical and analytical skills prized by the profession, it also enables them to adopt a broader and critical view of the subject and to appreciate the limitations of the modelling approach and current methodology used in financial economics. It challenges students to take a critical view of the workings of financial markets, and equips them to contribute to current debates about the role of Finance in society. A Masters degree in the field of financial economics will provide students with the necessary skills and tools for a successful career as practicing financial economists in today s global knowledge economy. Graduates from this programme, equipped with strong quantitative and problem-solving competences and aware of both the strengths and weaknesses of financial economics as a subject, will be prepared to become the rounded and versatile thinkers sought by employers, whether in government, industry, consultancy or academia. 2.2 Aim/s of the programme to provide an in-depth analytical and quantitative understanding of decision making on financial markets required to pursue a career as a professional financial economist or to enter a doctoral programme in financial economics, economics, finance or related disciplines. to develop skills of critical enquiry and self-reflection to enable students to engage with current research and debates in the discipline to prepare students to undertake substantive research in financial economics with selfdirection and originality SECTION 3: PROGRAMME LEARNING OUTCOMES On Completion, students will be able to: Academic Literacy 1. demonstrate in-depth knowledge and critical understanding of the core models and concepts used in modern economic theory with a particular view to the functioning of (international) financial markets and their role in a modern economy.

4 2. use both deductive and inductive reasoning to devise solutions to a range of complex financial market issues and explore their relevance for the economy and society as a whole 3. synthesise and critically interpret econometric evidence 4. use economic reasoning to analyse economic decisions affecting financial markets, critically evaluate market outcomes and draw policy inferences from such evaluation Research Literacy 5. select and critically apply appropriate research methods and tools, understanding their constraints and limitations 6. demonstrate initiative, imagination and innovation in the selection and conduct of a major research project in a relevant area of financial economics 7. critically evaluate current research in the discipline and demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of recent debates Critical Self-awareness and personal literacy 8. understand the long-standing controversies among specialists and non-specialists about the role and workings of financial markets and their importance for economic development, in light of the incomplete nature of knowledge in financial economics 9. demonstrate a healthy scepticism towards all assertions from whatever source and understand the importance of confronting all theoretical frameworks with evidence 10. communicate complex arguments and ideas in financial economics to both specialist and non-specialist audiences 11. work both independently and collaboratively, experiencing a range of alternative viewpoints on financial economics and its role in society and the economy Digital and information literacy 12. collect, organise, interpret and present both qualitative and quantitative data and information relevant to financial economic issues 13. use a range of information technologies and software to conduct statistical analysis of data, to confront theory with evidence and to disseminate conclusions and findings Global Citizenship 14. understand the complex linkages between developments in financial markets and the economic, social and political environment and assess the effect of globalised and rapidly changing financial markets on diverse groups both nationally and internationally 15. be aware of different viewpoints in contemporary debates on financial markets, articulate the value of alternative methodologies and engage in reasoned argument with those who hold alternative viewpoints. SECTION 4: PROGRAMME STRUCTURE AND CURRICULUM 4.1 Programme structure and requirements (all Level 7 modules): Module Number Module Title Credit Value Status P5xxxx Advanced Microeconomics 20 Compulsory for MSc P58822 Financial Markets and Institutions 20 Compulsory for MSc P5xxxx Econometrics 20 Compulsory for MSc P5xxxx Topics in Economics 20 Compulsory for MSc P58827 Financial Modelling 20 Compulsory for MSc P5xxxx Economic Growth 20 Optional for MSc P5xxxx Industrial Organisation 20 Optional for MSc

This approach attempts to put into practice a number of the key provisions in the Brookes Assessment Compact. In particular it is intended to embody important elements of section 2.1 (by seeing `assessment as a fundamental and integral part of programme design and as `intended to shape and develop learning ) and section 2.2 (by ensuring that `assessment (is) designed at programme level and that `assessment shapes learning in a coherent and holistic fashion ). In turn assessment within each module has been aligned with teaching methods. The approach taken is based on the recognition that economics is a subject area requiring a cumulative process of learning, in which each stage of development builds on what has come before. Consequently, it is crucial for students both to appreciate the links between different stages in their learning and to be able to move from foundational studies to the application of ideas in more complex contexts, especially those relating to policy choices. As a result of this, the first semester, which provides the building blocks of the programme, is predominantly assessed by examination, which allows for a breadth of coverage in the assessment process and for the testing of the ability to link different aspects of the subject together. This is particularly the case for P5XXXX Advanced Microeconomics and P58822 Financial Markets and Institutions. These modules make extensive use of lectures which also allow for the contextualisation of the subject matter, while these lectures are supported by seminar activities. The other module in the first semester, P5XXXX Econometrics, begins the process of testing theoretical knowledge empirically and investigating concrete economic problems, while also providing basic foundational knowledge of appropriate statistical techniques. Consequently, it uses a combination of workshop and lecture activity and is assessed both by coursework and examination. The second semester of the programme develops further the application of theoretical knowledge and the critical appreciation of the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches within the discipline and as this is done the emphasis in the programme as a whole moves towards coursework assessment which allows for inquiry into specific issues in depth. This mode of assessment is backed up by a learning process based on active involvement in workshop and seminar activities. The key modules in this regard are P58827 Financial Modelling and in particular P5XXXX Topics in Economics in which research-led teaching based on the expertise of the course team provides a stimulus for students to develop their own abilities as researchers and thereby leads into the dissertation which is the culminating module for the course.

6 Throughout the programme P5XXXX Research Methods aims to move in a similar direction to that discussed above; starting with developing skills related to basic investigatory techniques which are fundamental to work as a professional economist and continuing with more complex discussions of methodological controversies which provide the framework within which dissertation work can proceed. The following table relates the various modules on the MSc to the programme learning outcomes and postgraduate attributes. It is not meant to imply that the modules listed are the only ones in which the various outcomes and attributes are addressed; simply that they are the main vehicles for ensuring that outcomes and attributes are included within the programme.
