Financial Economics (FUNDP campus) [30.0]
This is designed to give students training in the foundations of monetary and financial matters, with an analysis of the basic principles of monetary policy and the mechanisms for implementing it and the working of financial markets and financial institutions. It puts financial trading both in a macroeconomic and monetary context as well as looking at the microeconomic challenges of incomplete markets and asymmetric information. Students are also introduced to the empirical analysis of how markets work.
This is designed for students who are interested in a career in the financial sector (e.g. banks, stock exchanges and insurance companies), in macro-monetary regulation (central banks and international monetary institutions) and in management in the private sector and who wish to have a better understanding of the financial markets with which companies constantly have to interact.
