MBA: Economics of Financial Markets Concentration

The Economics of Financial Markets concentration aims to produce graduates with a thorough understanding of the complexities of international financial and economic markets. In an increasingly interdisciplinary world, the concentration envisions synergistic connections between the two separate but inter-related disciplines of economics and finance that make the whole greater than the sum of its parts. The interlocking of the two disciplines through the carefully selected courses will provide a needed breadth of vision of both the national and international economic and financial landscapes, thus equipping our students to meet and effectively solve future problems in the field.
