Financial Economics is a course in economic theory and relevant applications for finance students. It draws upon well-established microeconomic theory, which helps to provide an understanding of the interactions between agents and markets within the global financial system. The course also develops macroeconomic theory that directly relates to the monetary and banking system. A solid foundational understanding of financial economics is critical for students to develop core competency in finance.
