FINC5090: Finance in the Global Economy

Modern financial markets are at the heart of the global economy. Thus, an understanding of finance requires a global perspective. This unit of study focuses on three core ideas. First, it provides a description of the role of financial markets within the global economy using modern methods. Next, it focuses on the tools which are needed to understand finance from a global perspective. Finally, it focuses on the behaviour of market participants and how they interact in a global setting. On completion of this unit students have an understanding of financial markets and their participants and how they interact in an integrated world.
