The recent banking crisis has demonstrated the need for those in banking and finance to be aware of the macroeconomic implications of their actions, which tend to feed back to the banking and financial sectors. With these needs in mind, this module tackles the issues in development economics with a particular emphasis on the role of the financial system and banks, while also delivering cutting-edge research on the question of the sustainability of our current financial and economic system. The programme offers a coherent theoretical framework for the various subject areas, with particular emphasis on the international dimension and the practical application of financial techniques in a real-world setting.
