From September 2009, The School of Law and Department of Economics at Queen Mary (QMUL) will be offering a Masters of Science (MSc) in Economics and Finance program and three additional specialist areas in Banking and Financial Services, Law and Financial Regulation and Law and Corporate Finance.
According to the university, the program aims to "provide a high level inter-disciplinary treatment of the key subject areas within law and finance for advanced academic study and professional training purposes. It combines the study of financial law and regulation with the general principles of economics and finance that relate to the operation of financial markets."
The course is designed for students who have taken courses in economics and finance, business management, and law at the undergraduate level.
Applicants should have a minimum upper second class honors or an equivalent degree in law/economics or finance, or a degree with substantial law content. Applicants with substantial professional relevant experience in the law or banking/finance areas and/or regulation and compliance will also be considered.
