BSc (Hons) Economics & Finance
The Economics & Finance programme at ISBF has been developed by some of the best minds at the London School of Economics (LSE), from the eponymous departments which are ranked 5th and 4th in the world respectively (QS 2020). This programme combines two highly sought-after disciplines and is ideal for you if you wish to understand the functioning of global financial markets, their valuation and volatility, and how all these are inter-related with economic policies and growth.
The programme curriculum starts by building a strong base in mathematics, statistics, economics and finance. Using this, you will go on to specialised courses in both disciplines, such as micro and macro economics, monetary economics, international economics, corporate finance, asset pricing and financial markets, and quantitative finance, besides pursuing higher level courses in mathematics and applied statistics, or econometrics.
By the end of the programme, you will have developed into one of the most analytically sound graduates in the country, with a thorough understanding of economic and financial techniques and their applications. This will equip you to pursue a career in areas like economic/financial research, investment banking, corporate finance, actuarial science, central banking, policymaking, data science, private equity and hedge funds.
Note: This Bachelor’s of Economics & Finance programme is one of its kind. Most Indian universities tend to offer finance courses as electives on programmes specialising in Economics, Business, Commerce, Business Administration or Management. That is why this world-class Finance programme produces peerless Finance graduates in the Indian context.
