Why Study Economics and Finance?
In a globalised marketplace where economies are interconnected by high volume financial flows, a degree in Economics and Finance is one of the most exciting undergraduate degrees you can pursue. The multidisciplinary approach of the course combines a deep understanding of financial concepts, theories and methods of investigation in the context of larger economic models. Consider these questions:
- Why did the US financial crisis of 2008 bankrupt a country like Iceland, on another continent?
- Why is an Internet company like Facebook worth so much more than a global giant like Coca Cola?
- Despite the consistently high rate of growth in India, why is the rupee depreciating against the dollar?
- How do stock market trends act as an indicator of the health of an economy?
If these questions pique your curiosity, knowledge of economic and financial theory holds the answers you seek. This discipline gives you a constantly evolving understanding of the global economy using economic and quantitative frameworks. You get to explore solutions to real-life economic events.
