About Economics and Finance at University of Reading

Develop an in-depth understanding of the workings of financial markets from both economic and financial perspectives.

You will analyse the operation of global financial markets in a broad economic context and the effects that they have on the world. Core modules in each subject provide you with a thorough grounding in many aspects of finance, economics and quantitative techniques. You will also be able to widen your knowledge of both subjects through a range of optional modules.

This course is ideal if you are technically oriented, mathematically strong and interested in the interaction between economics and finance. Through the use of dealing rooms, all supported by Thompson Reuters and Bloomberg and equipped with the latest industry simulation software, you can gain a direct insight into how financial markets operate.

In addition to traditional lectures, you will partake in small group tutorials in which you can discuss and analyse theory and practice through case studies, group presentations and open debate. You can also apply what you learn to a placement and gain valuable real-world experience at the same time.
