Course Details

Be among the first to study at our new £16 million Brookfield campus, with state-of-the-art learning and facilities exclusive to Leicester School of Business students. 

Our BSc Financial Economics and Banking will introduce you to a broad range of topics including banking, financial intermediation, asset and liability management, financial decision making and financial markets and institutions.

This wide range of topics will give you an in-depth understanding of the way that financial organisations and markets work. You will learn to apply economic theory in financial contexts, for example the appraisal of competing investment opportunities and how government policy influences the stock market and the banking sector.

The course will familiarise you to techniques such as derivatives pricing, risk management methods and portfolio management, while you will also become a proficient user of financial software and complex data sources which will enable you to better understand the impact and reach of economic decisions.

You can study the syllabus for the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Certificate at the School of Business, helping prepare you to take the examination for the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Certificate directly with the CFA. In addition, the Financial Economics and Banking BSc is accredited by CIMA, the professional body of management accountants.

An optional year studying abroad or undertaking an industry placement will enhance your skills and build your professional network. Your time with us will also equip you with the research techniques that are vital to postgraduate study.

The close relationship between research and teaching is one of the great advantages of studying with us, and we welcome talented students from countries all over the world. 

Our staff are active researchers of international renown, and have acted as advisers and consultants to many international and national organisations, including the European Central Bank, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the Central Bank of Poland, the Central Bank of Greece and a number of UK Government departments.
